I am finally finished with redoing my old Trek 1000 road bike. I still want a white seat and some white pedals, but this will do for now. I already have a fixed gear bike and a super nice road bike (thanks Mom and Dad). This is somewhere in between. I envision myself riding to work, to the store, or even to another state. There is room for cargo and it still rides very smoothly.
Celebrate Columbus day by remembering his accomplishment in the face of adversity, but also remember the real "first discoverers" who pioneered so much themselves.
P. S. I agree with Massam: NASCAR is a sport. Also, those engineers really know how to get the most from those vehicles.
