ADMIRING MY BIKE
To me, it's a 15-year old Cannondale touring bike that I hoped would hold together for the 2,000-mile trek thru India. To the folks who gathered 'round at each stop we made along National Highway 7, it was something of a marvel.
Gears. Gear shifters. Cables. Strange pedals. Odd seat. An aero bar. Mounted water bottles. Cycle computer. GPS. Very different from a standard Atlas or Hero bike.
In America, my bike's considered a clunker. In India, it was a very cool.
