People who like bicycles seem to collect them the way cat lovers collect cats. I still own the first bicycle I bought in 1975, a Raleigh Competition. I peddled it across Canada in 1977 on sew up tires. The formula for how many bicycles one should own, x, is described by the equation x = n + 1 where n is equal to the number of bikes you already own. Members of my family, which include someone with a PhD in statistics and another with a degree in engineering, do not agree with me. When I saw this bike tonight in Vancouver I was puzzled. Would the formula need to change with this bike?
