Mike: what are those dangerously heresy-skirting "other bikes"? Photos?
Daughters: even more expensive than bikes. My daughter is 15, so I have
plenty of free time; just no money (or life). Daughters if well raised
become as they get older less demanding of time but far more demanding of

to Ireland; cash for dress for tonight's dance because, well, she didn't
think to order cheaper online until last night; etc etc etc.
I still cycle as avidly as I did 30 years ago when I started up again after
a 9 year hiatus; I'm just slower.
