There used to be a time, not too long ago,
when feats of engineering were measured by the skill of a man’s hand…
rather than a computer design program.
When quality machines,
and the materials that made them,
came from the bowels of the earth…
instead of some laboratory.
This was a time,
when components were forged in the workshop of a tradesman…
instead of a Chinese manufacturing plant.
A time when kings were measured by the scars underneath their jerseys…
and not the logos on top of them.
This was an age of LEATHER,
This was the age…
of the B I C Y C L E.
