An older gentleman on the sidewalk yelled out to me as I pedaled by: "Hey, that looks like my old bike...Its not a Louison Bobet, is it?" I yelled back over the traffic noise, "I wish!" and exchanged a smile with him. (It was a lowly late 80s Panasonic DX-4000, uniglide and all, but that didn't matter.) The headwind, heat, humidity and hoopties didn't seem so bad after that.
