We were sitting outside last night chatting away when it came by to say hello! But please, I'm NOT complaining! This is PRIME riding weather. A couple pull-overs (and in my case a 30 year old flannel) and once you get going, after a few minuets of pedaling, the cold air doesn't bother you! We here, in Florida, sometimes forget just how icky the summer months are, when we are bundled up again the winter air. But TRUST ME, those sweaty, melting, stifling days are only a couple months away! Get OUT and enjoy this while you can!
Yesterday, being the second official day (and first weekend) of Spring Break meant ONE THING...very quiet streets!
For some ungodly reason, people actually choose to go to the beach? Yea, throngs of people dressed scantily (and most not really looking all that appealing as such (think ME in a Speedo!? Sorry if you're eating)) eating at overpriced restaurants, buying tacky, high priced knick knacks (all made in China) and spending the majority of the day, in their cars, unable to find a place to park!
Somehow....doesn't sound all that much fun to me! Nah, give me the open trail, a nice little café' along the way and peace and quiet. And most folks on the trail keep their clothes on!
So yesterday, was dedicated primarily to new builds, although the ones I choose to work on needed a heck of a lot of TLC! put out another sweet 6 speed cruiser and a cute 6 speed, 20" MTB. Also, tore down a FINE looking 7 speed Schwinn Cruiser with full fenders! This one is a peach!
Today is more of the same, as we got in even MORE "DAILY BANGER SPECIAL" stock!
(sorry if I sound like I'm rambling, but some young man has just wandered into the shop and has been trailing on and on and on....about video games...apparently under the impression I have ANY interest in the subject matter! Isn't it strange how some folks talk about video games as if they were adventures they REALLY went on? Seriously, to quote William Shatner in the immortal SNL sketch, "GET A LIFE!!")
OK, like the guy on the airplane pretending he is reading, in an attempt to ignore the prattling on of his motor mouthed neighbor, my continuing to type seems to have warded him off.
As I was saying, I'm jumping back on the rebuild band wagon, and you can go ahead and check out the new goodies we put out yesterday. Oh, and we got one interesting little toy, the "Electrified Personal Rover"! It' kind of like a long board...with ski poles...and a motor.
oh, don't ask me! I'm selling it as a favor to one of our regulars. It is fun, had it out in the parking lot yesterday tooling around, and I'm sure would be quiet handy for going to the beach!
If you're into that.
See y'all soon!
