“It is a good bike. Not too light. Not too heavy. But it is stiff. I like it.”
Notes: Ride your bike enough and there are faces you come across all the time. This is one of my roadside cycling friends. We run across each either to discuss; the latest races; news from the circuits; best prices in shops; components we want. It is the easiest way to spend 30 minutes before we have to move in our separate directions. I see him more and more now, but,m for the longest time, I only saw him when the weather was terrible. He could always be counted on to ride in miserable weather.
