in je ogen waait de wind
yes i feel the same. and those modern bicycles look like shit. they look like transformers or fighter jets. the thing i find even more bizarre is people going around on racing bikes thinking they're in the tour the france. except they're in a chaotic city with street lights, narrow streets and traffic everywhere. it hurts my eyes seeing how they have to bend their backs and necks in order to look ahead. plus half of the time they can't drive because streets are paved with big cobbles.i hate how cycling has been upsold, so all the protection and padding, the kit people have, the ridiculous expensive bikes, strava, special water bottles, pouches, all that shit. take a nice simple thing, build a whole bastard system round it.
i drive my bicycle everyday and i regularly receive death threats from car drivers. another thing they sometimes do is to "pretend" they want to hit me, making a sudden move so it looks they are crashing into me and turning back on the last moment, its psychopathic really.
burn all cars.
