    In the ’40’s only those fortunate enough to be in the middle class could afford the luxery of a 3 speed.

    My first bike was in the 50’s and I didn’t even know there was such a thing as more than one speed.

    So a plugger can’t be born past a certain year? I’m 49 and I had a ten speed when I was 12.

    My first bike was a one-speed with a banana seat, flowered basket and handlebar streamers! I wore that thing out!!
