A recent boing thread saw some discussion of the darker aspects of cycling and I was left wanting a counterpoint to that. The last bike thread seems to have died out and been closed, so maybe we can resurrect it and discuss how amazing bicycles are?
Here’s my latest love. A Cycles Toussaint Velo Routier, inspired by classic French randonneuring/cyclotouring bikes. The first bike I’ve built up myself (even the wheels). It carried me over 300km last weekend, through 18 hours of cold rain, without complaint.
