First of all, custom bicycles became very attractive. Almost all of my colleagues were talking about where and how you might design your own bike.

Nonetheless, I have to admit 1 thing. I still don’t know if all those small things have actually changed, or if I was homesick so badly, that now I see it in much more positive light.
