Yesterday was another Whiz Bang of a day! The cruiser we picked up on Saturday (oh,,,sorry, the BLUE cruiser we picked up Saturday....no...wait....the light blue cruiser we picked up Saturday) went home first thing with a returning gent who has diligently been visiting us to find the perfect bike. He came in to look at the Schwinn Hybrid we picked up but settled on the cruiser, as it was a better fit. Also got in another slew of repairs, and we will take the time to thank each and every one of you for your trust! Also, thanks to all the folks who promptly came in and picked up the finished products. One of them, unfortunately came back a few minuets later, though. It was a young mans mountain bike, and he really likes to ride his bike hard. As Dad was paying for the repairs (about the forth time this particular bike has been in for a variety of repairs) I tried to pinch them some pennies, and after replacing the majority of the drive train I kept the original cassette in the hopes it would hold up. It didn't. They brought it back stating that there was still a minor skip. Thankfully, they understood my intentions, but Dad said just go ahead and give it what it needed. He is a much more generous soul then I! General rule around our house is, bicycle upgrades only when you outgrow them and if you want them fixed, I'll show you how to do it!
Managed to get out two new gems as well! Check out below the absolutely gorgeous an scary-light Specialized Dolce Elite! Also, a "better then new" Men's cruiser!
Elijah seems to be slowly adapting to his new lifestyle. Thankfully he still keeps in relatively frequent contact (texting with him as we speak) and his last few texts seemed less and less funereal and depressive. We are now at the "matter of fact" stage. Hopefully, he will soon see what a truly SWEET deal he has! If he is anything like his old man it will be in a few weeks when he hits BOSTON!! Yes, the lucky little bugger is going to the BEST CITY in all the known freaking worlds! I told him he best get me a T-Shirt! Lucky little.....
I'd best get my buns a waggin!
See y'all soon!
