Large but lonely dating site
I’ve been in whole seasons of my life where, though I had people around, I felt quite alone in my calling. And I know the thoughts of being set aside are loud and overwhelmingly tempting to believe in the hollows of feeling unnoticed and uninvited.
Before the wonders of the Internet, lonely singles had to make plans, get dressed up, and actually go outside to meet people. My introverted heart feels tired just typing all that.
At least it would be the earliest date that the bike could have been made.
Of course, all this assumes the bike has the original component.
Some bike parts have a date code cast or stamped into the piece.
This clearly is when the component was made and not when the bike was made, but unless the component or bike manufacturer had lots of stock lying around in inventory, the date should be a fairly good indication of the year of the bike.

There were many feelings I expected to have at this conference I’d been looking forward to attending. I took my seat and pulled out my cell phone as I nervously waited for my tablemates. If he could get me to feel this, then I’d become completely self-absorbed in my own insecurity and miss whatever reason God had for me to be at this event. It’s tough when everything around you screams “merry” while you’re aching with loneliness and feel anything but. This will develop in you a deeper sense of compassion for your fellow travelers. Had I been surrounded by the voices of those people I was so eager to meet that night, I would have surely missed the voice of God.
