The world has gone completely mad! I was looking at bicycles the other day with my wife as she is looking to upgrade and in this store there was a bike for 9K. That is right $9,000.00 USD! My own bicycle was about 600.00 new and I thought that I was over spending at the time so maybe I have a view that is colored by a level of parsimony that is past average/normal but 9 Grand is certainly over the top. The bike weighs less than a daily newspaper as I did pick it up and is so thin you could probably shave with it. I know it has a place in some microcosm of society but I'll never visit that neighborhood.
