    Just came across a retro bike shop in Adelaide that I had never seen before.

    Seems like classic bikes are the in thing round here at the moment.

    Lots of money in old bikes, I often wonder where they get parts.

    You may not know the statistics for bicycle sales in Australia, but it's a staggering number considering our population of 24 million.

    Last year 1 million bicycles were sold which equals the number of new cars sold - that in itself is a staggering figure for our small population.

    Just in my local area, there's so many spandex wearing cyclists, it's has become a serious safety issue as they see fit to ride two or three abreast; forever holding up the traffic.
    This happens every couple hundred meters and on a Saturday it's impossible to drive anywhere in the hills as these guys think they're on a Tour de France training run; believing they have more road rights than cars.
