bicycles

Recently, I've been on the look out for a used vintage bicycle. The best part has been visiting bicycle shops and meeting those that work in them. You can tell they love what they do.

  1. Vintage bikes are super cool. I hope you find one and take lots of photos of it!

    Have you listened to Natalie Merchant's new album? I am going to check that out. I loved her 90's stuff, especially Carnival.

  5. I have also been looking for a new bike, although I don't know that i'm going to get a used one. What type of bike are you looking for? That photo is pretty sweet.

  6. Megan: Yay! for the love of Natalie Merchant...I've also loved her for so long (10,000 Maniacs, etc). I do have her latest album and it's wonderful with a lovely mix of words and sounds.

    Tracy: Yes, it turned out quite different than I had anticipated, but it grew on me. I loved the idea of concrete and hanging bicycles. It looked like a rock climbing wall.

    Tumbleweed Woman: Sweetness weeee!

    Des: Quite!

    Adam: I'm looking for one with a big comfy seat, longer handle bars...maybe a raleigh, but I'm still open to others! What kind do you think you'll go for?
