Addiction LXXX

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

The attraction of heavy, clunker bikes. I drive a clunker car and no one (rightly) cares about it.

I would be surprised if any of the bikes that show up on that page are heavier than 25lbs.

But yeah, bunch of clunkers. Why would anyone be interested in something like this?

I can't recall what that was in response to.

Would you pay $22,000 for an 80s Corolla?
