    Without reading the link, just reading the title, I'll classify you as needy.

    It's winter we all need a break.

    Whatever floats the collective boat tickles me pink. We ride bikes.

    Funny thing about this is that if you show up to rides like D2R2 or Ballers you'll see every bike. Literally every bike, no kidding.

    Is it just me or was the Gravel Bike market saturated by the time of the demise of the Schwinn Varsity?

    At this point I'm more tired of the "anything can be a gravel bike" conversation than I am of the "I can't ride gravel on my road bike" one.

    Jeez, tough crowd.

    Not entirely unexpected of people who wouldn't get the title reference.

    I was about to say the exact same thing-- tough crowd. And I don't even get the title ref.
    It's a pretty benign blog post; although I wouldn't have taken the time to write it, I don't disagree with it.

    As bad as they were, it was the bike clubs and bike manufacturers that kept them from being worse.
