I know some can relate to this tale.
Sickness: “Man, I haven’t been to this bike shop in ages. I’m driving past and have a minute, I should just walk through.”
Illness: “Is that a Thomson Masterpiece seatpost in the bargain bin?”
Disease: “27.2 x 350. That’d be perfect for my Big Dummy.”
When you start rationalizing superior design and weight savings for the seatpost on a heavy, steel cargo bike, you know it’s a disease. (No, honey. I didn’t buy it.)
