I've been thinking about getting a new bike ever since I got back to Florida. Other things took a priority till this last couple weeks. I was talking to a group of friends last week and the fallout of that conversation was that one couple had a ladies bike, very minimally used that they wanted to give to me. I was overjoyed! They delivered it today and I think it's great!
Of course, 12 speeds is a bit ambitious for the New Port Richey area, however, it has those great knobbly tires and a nice sturdy frame. It has a gel seat, which is also a fine thing. It's not exactly a "Mama Chari" like the one I posted about on my previous blog in October 2010, but a great bike, none the less.
In case you're wondering, it is in my house presently, in my Florida room, to protect it from the elements and from anyone with a sticky finger or two.
