Fossil BS: Obsolete in your lifetime? (162* d) RE: BS: Obsolete in your lifetime? 21 May 12


One thing that popped up in another context:

You never see a bicycle propped up on the kerb by one pedal anymore.

While there are lots of bikes around, they are either stripped-down very expensive racers or mountain bikes, which don't ever get left out anywhere unless they are chained to a bike rack. And most have derailleur gears, which don't give the pedal much purchase.

Whatever happened to the old black Raleighs, with mudguards, chain covers, panniers and proper Sturmey-Archer gears? You still see 'em in Holland, but everywhere else they seem to have disappeared.
