On a vintage bike in excellent condition (that apparently had a lonely existence in a garage) all of the components likely are original.
As the wear on a vintage bike increases, the greater the likelihood components are not original, either through replacement of worn parts or through component swaps.
Charlie's brother, Sam, dies in a car crash that Charlie survives.
Charlie is given the gift of seeing his dead brother, but when the girl he falls in love with's life is at risk, he must choose between his girlfriend and his brother.
The components were added by the local bike shop or by the buyer. Components also could be swapped from an existing ride to the new frameset.
This makes dating the components an interesting archeological investigation, but one not necessarily related to the date of the bike. Trek owner Larry Osborn made this observation, and suggested this as a supplementary way of dating a Trek (and other bikes as well).
There are a couple chuckle-worthy moments, and some clever banter between the three guys, but most of the comedy falls flat and the romance is absolutely insane from beginning to end.
You don't believe these relationships for a second. It turns the characters into caricatures at times because of how fake it is. It would've been terrible if they cast average actors, but thankfully the stellar cast keeps the movie watchable and mildly entertaining until the end.No one in their right mind would say these things, and no woman in their right mind would react positively to these things. As a romcom it's insane, but then again, most of them are so you should know what you're getting into with That Awkward Moment.[Atom] [Brooks] [Campagnolo] [Dia-Compe and Weinmann] [Huret] [Maillard] [Normandy] [Nitto] [SR (Sakae)] [Sachs-Huret] [Shimano] [Strong] [Sansin] [Sunshine] [Sun Tour (Maeda)] [Sugino] [Tange] [Williams] [Dancing Chain] [Saddles]The date of manufacture of a bicycle's components can often be used to determine the date of manufacture of the bike itself.Unfortunately, the material they have to work with here is artificial and stupid.There are some lines in this movie that no one would ever say.When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.
