Addiction LXXIX

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

Does you friend keep all the bikes?
I think so but not positive. His main road bike is a Seven he got about 4 years ago. It’s possible he got rid of some of the older ones, but I don’t know.

Here is a screen grab of his new bike from Strava. Looks good!

Speaking of stench, here is the bike of the day. So rusty, I had to use all of the solvents and lubricants at my disposal.

The residual chemical stench caused Mrs. rjones28 to shun me when I got home.

I'm not sure I would spend money repairing that thing. Different strokes for different folks. RIP Gary Coleman, Conrad Bain and Todd Bridges

That's why some people can't have nice things. Granted, that may not have been the nicest thing, even when new, but it was nice to someone.
