Perhaps no one explained it to you ladyZ. You get the different speeds by pedalling faster or slower!

Me either, just a regular bike with no shifters and you peddaled backward to brake [img]smile.gif[/img] . Do they still even make those kinds of bikes?

I also remember the joy of finally getting a banana seat and a sissy bar [img]smile.gif[/img]

I believe they make some dirt bikes with traction brakes. But, yes, getting a bicycle is the first real taste of freedom and autonomy. In sociology I learned that learning to drive an automobile is the new "rite of Passage" into adulthood, so the bike is kind of a step along the way. [img]smile.gif[/img]
