New Gears! . . . Rory Schell at Val's Cyclery in Minot, North Dakota,
expertly replaces & fine-tunes my rear gear cluster.
On the road in American Northwest.
Bikes make an excellent model for a new, life-is-round,
economy. Every part has name, a maker, and someone
who knows how to replace it! Bikes are best sold and
serviced by relatively small shops. That's because the shop
serves an area where cyclists can easily ride to have work
done, or pick up new parts. Bikes are the "slow food"
of machines. Made to last; made to establish strong
face-to-face relationships between buyer and seller;
made to make the environment as well as the user
healthier the more it is used.
