I started adhering to Rule 12 and bought another bike. This time it’s a classic Dutch Gazelle from the 70s. Barely working drum brakes, beautiful brown paint-job with extra rust and a weight of circa 16 tons, but nothing beats the comfort of an opafiets. And you can get it all for only €40 (plus €20 in repairs) from certain philosophers in Groningen!
