for all the rice in china

this, is a pitch for a shanghai bicycle shop guy …

it’s okay, I think, to have something made in china that is for china!
lot of the boys I knew, when I was a callow yute, had racing bikes and used to go to stadium and ride round the track, drafting and racing … all about speed; the bikes had fixed pedals, you couldn’t coast, as the wheels moved the pedals moved and as the pedals moved the wheels moved; a continuous cycle that was hard to break …
I didn’t have such a bike … besides, dready’s more of a skeng foot ambler than a racer, dallying through traffic knees out, heels in, elbows in, pant foot rolled up …
ride natty ride!
