yes. the floating world...my virgin year. it has never been so hard and fast since i believe. i brought my road bike that year and rode it lots.
i would like that LOTS!
It was like that in 2003 as well (my virgin year)- I had a super lightweight bike and I could pedal it a few times and just coast for ages. It was a dream. Agree the playa hasn't been like that since, and neither has my bike (damn bike thieves in SF).
I remember that biking smoothness! It was lovely . . . especially at night in the middle of nowhere.
