My little son and I were walking down the road. There were two boys biking down in our front. My son said, "another bike is in front of the other one". Of course it was a tongue-twister. What is the most concise way to put it? Certainly, not, One bile is i n front of the other, for that will be too general. Can it be: "The one bike is ahead of the other", using the 'the' for marking off the statement as a particular, observed situation?
