Young man, you have a problem
When you dream about bikes, spent most of your free income and time on bikes and obsessively take pictures of bikes, you have a problem.
Some problems are meant to be solved and some problems are meant to be embraced and repackaged in other terms. Some people use words such as “life style” or “career choice” to this repackaging process. I won’t make such bold statements. What I will make is a promise to really focus on what’s of interest to me as a cyclist. I don’t have secret industry intel to share, nor do I find the Tour de France particularly exciting to watch. I am forever concerned with such eternal questions which I will try to answer here:
- Is there such an animal as “The One” bike?
- Is lycra really necessary and if so, why and what should one do with all that hair poking out of the lycra?
- How do you really get fitted for a bike?
- Why are some bike shops so much welcoming and enjoyable than others?
- Is there an ultimate balance between weight, comfort and versatility?
I’m sure that in this adventure there will be many more questions to consider. They will be investigated, photographed and documented and shared since we all know that sharing means caring.
Since this is the first post, allow me to start with an inspirational report. And I thought I had a problem…
