Well everyone knows my favourite is my Xizang, all the other bikes just seem temporary, I guess if I got a modern with all its comforts I might relegate it a little.

Occasionally I do think modern brakes would ease the strain on my hands but I think I have a few years yet before that happens.

I don't like jumping the Xizang too much from fear of damaging it but that has probably increased it's longevity.
