    I am having a series of inappropriate urges toward these bicycles.

    I think I need to go lie down until the urge to purchase things passes.

    See what I mean about the 1940s and 1950s “utility” bicycles? There was this moment in the 40s and 50s before car culture took its post-war hold and I think there’s *a lot* for us to learn from that period.
