Bikes in a Row

Bikes in a Row

I have enjoyed bike riding ever since I was a kid. Back in the ’60’s I bought a used French 5-speed bike (sorry I can’t remember the brand) to get to and from my first real job as a teenager. In those days, single speed bikes were the norm and a few enthusiasts had what were called “English Racing bikes” … which were typically 3 speeds. I got many comments from folks: “Why would anyone need more than 3 speeds?” Of course, these days it is more likely to find a bike with 24 speeds …

My current bike has ten speeds and 4 levels of electric assist… which makes 40 choices, I suppose. But, I don’t use that many… some combinations just don’t seem be as useful. But I sure love that electric assist.
