I use a 1999 Ford Taurus SE Wagon with the back seats folded down. Hauls my Trek inside. Looking at a roof rack I can manage (since I am a wheelchair user part of the time)

Seconded on that thought, lighter, much better frame, better componentry, and much nicer to ride overall.

The Rapper (C-Rapper) in the background is enough for me to not want to buy a Peloton. I prefer real scenery, and my Trek being pedaled on real bike paths, and scenery. Stationary bikes, are so PT.

The last sentence here, tells all. The SunTour Cyclone GT simply put, was the king of wide range touring derailleurs ever built in that era. It shifted reliably, it was beautiful, rugged, reliable,...

To paraphrase what you say. A BSO is to bicycling, what a cheapie Crosley or similar is to a owner of a proper turntable with a good tonearm and cartridge. Both are poorly built, unsafe (in the case...

A trike or handcycle is a possible solution. There is adaptive equipment out there, and ways to get him cycling. It's great exercise (PT in a more fun way). Seeing scenery is also good.

Yes, it is. I see this as a sign of real life sanity. Many audiophiles loved iPhones, they miss the 3.5 mm audio jack, also many dislike the price of the iPhone X line and also slower data speeds,...
