Short Post

July 19, 2010

I’m pretty sick..I’ve been sick all day:( I’ve mostly been sleeping and being nauseous. Definitely not one of my better days.

I hope to be well by Friday as I’m taking an Introduction to Basic Bike Maintenance class and I wanted to go earlier so I could walk through the bike yard to see if I could spy any Mixte Bikes. Yep that will be my final bike…well final for at least a year…or 6 months..hopefully.

I’m going to be cleaning up and selling my hybrid as I had mentioned I’m just not enjoying riding it and would like to go to someone that will appreciate it more. Its pretty funny that when I though I had done all this bike research and picked a bike I would be happy with I ended up not being that way at all. Of course owning the hybrid opened me up more into the world of bicycling so that I could finally figure out what I wanted. So that as they say is that.

If I can only have three then I want the Pashley, The Raleigh DL-1 and a Mixte. For the Mixte I’m looking for either a Motobecane or a Raleigh with twin lateral stays. I have a feeling though its going to be an exhaustive search for the Mixte for me. It also must be Blue or Silver:) And I’ll probably have to get hubby’s new television first too.

Much Love & Happy Riding!!

    Sounds like an excellent ideal herd! I too would do the Pashley (since I’m saving for one anyway), the mixte (which I happen to have in both a blue and a silver!) and DL-1, if I could ever find one. They seem to have never been sold this far south. Good luck in your mixte search!

      oh my goodness…I’ll look for a DL-1 for you and you can find me a Mixte and we can ship them to each other:) I’m half tempted to knock someone off theirs;) I really wouldn’t though:)

        Lol, Bike Swap! 🙂 That would be rather funny, and possibly fun as well.

      Would you consider a Concord? I saw one in my area on CL for pennies (well, pennies in bike money). Shimmery light blue. They’ve had it for a few weeks, so I bet they’d ship. I think it’s lugged.

    Yeah, check it out. It’s the Columbus, Ohio CL. The specific area of town is Grove City. I can’t attest to their work, but they say they tune up all the bikes they sell before listing them.

      Zoinks, there’s two of them, now! One’s in the Short North area. More expensive, but prettier.
