Perennial wisdom versus new technology


That recurring theme On An Overgrown Path of perennial wisdom versus new technology is given a fresh twist in this holiday weekend photo. On the left perennial wisdom is represented by the 20 year old Moulton APB bike with its steel space frame and dual suspension that I am riding. On the right is new technology in the form of the carbon fibre computer enabled Factor Vis Vires being ridden by our son who is part of the team that created the bike at bf1systems. You can see me looking enviously at the £10k bike and perennial wisdom versus new technology is really no contest. As a young St. Thérèse of Lisieux said when she was offered a handful of ribbons to choose from - 'I choose all'.

Also on Facebook and Twitter. Photo is (c) On An Overgrown Path 2013. No freebies involved but I did get to ride the Factor Vis Vires.
