Thus I am just wondering

1) What is the age of your bike that you are frequently and actively riding now?

2) What is the oldest age of your bike that you own now (may not ride it that frequent)?

Not just bike shops Though I heard a sales guy at a very reputable electronics chain spinning a sucker that his new 60" TV absolutely needed a $75 gold plated HDMI cable to get the best quality 1080p picture. When I pointed out that it's a digital signal not some analog HIFI thing - it either works or it doesn't he wasn't very happy, but the sucker still bought the cable"



But than, if you are cycling in groups, sure bow down to peer pressure & poisoned.

face value/ appreance very important....example: underwear wear 10 years also never mind, but handphone must change every one to 2 years.  

:-) "
Usually there is some poisoning out of perception/ignorance. So lucky, not met any issue from others who collected more cycling podium medals, than my steel road bike. I do find the padded tighs more comfortable. But do not like the idea of clipless shoes/pedals (GCN said slowed the cyclist).

1st bicycle I bought was a fake road bike made in China. Every week one crank loosen when I pedal out of the saddle. Gave away to my brother, who also gave away to his colleague. Bought my current (2nd) road bike from a self-introduced ex-Yeo Hiap Seng factory staff. He told me he got it through its D & D lucky draw. But no one in his family could cycle bicycle. He had kept it as sovenir, but going to shift house, so decided to sell it. Vintage steel road bike, but still adequate to make many aluminium/carbon road bikes look defectively heavy and fragile. This road bike should be more than 20 years old, and a collector told me he had a similar one in his Tibet monastry.
