I al­ways look for­ward to RC’s ar­rival on the door­mat, and 162 is as good as ever. The ar­ti­cle about the JES mo­to­cy­clette is in­ter­est­ing to me as I’ve re­cently bought an elec­tri­cally as­sisted bi­cy­cle for my 20 mile round trip commute. Al­though sep­a­rated by 100 years, the two ma­chines ful­fil sim­i­lar func­tions and meet sim­i­lar needs. The per­for­mance is roughly the same too. One dif­fer­ence is that my Gazelle re­quires con­stant LPA, but its disc brakes are doubt­less a vast im­prove­ment on its el­derly cousin’s an­chors.

I doubt it’ll still be be­ing rid­den a cen­tury from now though... Dan Stevens, mem­ber 4440
