Interesting... yesterday, I was comparing apples with pears, and the
question came down to a single issue: could I fit both into the rack
pack on my bike? I could, with room to spare for peppers, garlic, and
a tomato. So I got 'em all.
Eat to ride, ride to eat.
I guess I could draw lessons, suggesting that my experience with a
fruit stand decision is symbolic for cycling choices. Like, "get one
of each." But that would be comparing apples to bikes, even more
problematic than pear comparisons.
BTW, I had a pleasant journey to the Eugene factory on Monday. Took
care of all the niggling needs - tires (I decided to stick to the
Stelvios), a Capreo wrench, and various odd bits. Such nice people.
And a final question: As I occasionally travel to places where I stay
in a high-rise, I've been considering a soft bag to carry my bike in
the elevator. (I sometimes get an odd glance from other passengers or
a stern lecture from building management about leaving the bike
outside.) Anyone have experience with the Bike Friday soft bags?
Durable? Handy? Useful? Seems that the bags pack small enough to
strap to the bike while I'm out riding.
