Don't try to change the subject. It was "Women and Bikes," not New Bikes and Old Bikes." Subtile sexual innuendoes aside, over time I've had two wives and have no plans to get another. I currently have 24 bikes and might get another as soon as... Oh what? This afternoon? And in answer to your obvious question, "No, I didn't leave either wife for another bicycle."

PS: Just to keep this thread on topic, I think six day bicycle racing was one of James Thurber's "Sex Substitutes" in his book, "Is Sex Necessary?"
