- Friends bike-related dissertation survey. How much do you love your bike?
NO – it does what it does and just because it’s more capable than I expect sometimes it hasn’t actively saved me
(is that what the question is about ?)
I guess there might be a difference between people that think the bike has saved them/has a name/has a personality and those of us who just see it as a load of parts. I dunno the specifics of what it’s trying to elucidate but I’m sure the research is informed from phenomena elsewhere e.g. motoring, other sports, musical instruments etc.Posted 6 years agosevenSubscriber
Now I think about it I should probably have named them, might have made things a bit easier on the domestic front..

Strange one that, unless you are a wierdo who names bikes and thinks they have feelings.
You never see them moving by themselves but you meet them in the least accountable places unexpectedly. Did you never see a bicycle leaning against the dresser of a warm kitchen when it is pouring outside? Near enough the family to hear the conversation? Not a thousand miles from where they keep the eatables?
The gross and net result of it is that people who spent most of their natural lives riding iron bicycles over the rocky roadsteads of this parish get their personalities mixed up with the personalities of their bicycle as a result of the interchanging of the atoms of each of them and you would be surprised at the number of people in these parts who are nearly half people and half bicycles…when a man lets things go so far that he is more than half a bicycle, you will not see him so much because he spends a lot of his time leaning with one elbow on walls or standing propped by one foot at kerbstonesPosted 6 years ago
