Addiction 2023.2

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Schwinn dealers would get truck loads of bikes - 100 bikes ... 200 ... 250 ... and at times all would already be reserved / sold

could not build them fast enough - some shops would hire high school and college kids just to assemble new bikes ... 5-7 days per week ..

Took a stroll through a lovely garden right across the street from our apartment this morning. More Joan Miro sculptures than you can count.

So, have you looked into selling the classic car and buying property? When we were there, they were talking about restricting foreign property purchases or at least making it somewhat tricky.

In our case, makes more sense to get a modest apartment for a couple weeks via AirBnB on an as-needed basis.

We have about 50 miles or more of gravel trails in my area,
But if I bought the kanzo I would make it more of an all road than strictly gravel. Buy a spare set of wheels and ride it on the road.

Unless you MTB or TT/Tri its really all you need. I cant think of any scenario whered Id do something different. But- for racing I only do gravel, so it makes sense to do all of my riding on that bike.

The only change I would consider making in the short term would be to swap to an Aspero 5 frame

It was an amazing time, wasnt it? 1976 was when I first jumped into cycling with a Schwinn Continental , served me well for a long while.

Jimi? Interesting question. There was some outrage when it came out back then. I remember seeing him on tv with Carson, I think. Carson asked him about the blowback and Jimi said "I thought it was beautiful." Perfect answer. I think it was the same show where his amplifier quit in the middle of Red House.

Of all the music coming out in the 60s I was most excited about Jimi Hendrix. The loss of Jimi hit me harder than any of the other icons of music during that era. A big disappointment.

But you may be right. These days it might stir up the crazies, or it might not.
