resilience [ri-zil-yuhns, -zil-ee-uhns]

2. ability to recover readily from illness, depression, adversity, or the like; buoyancy.

That is an bottle of 8 year old bourbon mounted on a 27 year old bicycle frame. It’s not that I like things because they’re old, but I like things that can last a long time. That got me thinking:

I know far more people who ride 30 year old bikes than drive 20 year old cars.
