I’m developing a possibly unhealthy obsession with my vintage bike. I spend too much time looking at Brooks leather seats, Brooks accessories, vintage English 3-speed sites, and various other parts and repair places.
As I’m biking to work this morning, I’m thinking to myself:
Why am I fascinated by this?
Is it because its got some type of ‘style’ that I might associate with it?
Is it an escape from work?
Is it because it reminds me of working on my ’56 Chevy in high school?
Is it a cheaper alternative to working on a vintage auto?
Too many questions. The answer is I like it and it makes me feel good.
