I Am Getting My Brand New Bicycle Today!

Posted on Posted in Bikes

After riding a too-small, ill-fitting little bicycle with drop handlebars that make me way way way too low to the ground, I am getting a grand bicycle with an upright riding position!

This bicycle…

.. Will be replaced by THIS!

Thanks to Brad at Urban Velo for this photo. If you like bikes, maybe even different bikes than the one above, and like riding in cities, you should definitely check out the Urban Velo site.

Although I’ll be riding the mixte version which means I don’t have to perform a gymnastic move in order to get on my bike. The top tube is sloped down much more which makes for easy mounting and dismounting. A mixte is sometimes called a “women’s bike” but I prefer the beautiful word “mix-tee” instead.

I cannot wait to go grocery shopping with this brand new bicycle!

Countdown: one hour, ten minutes, 9 seconds!

  1. Congrats – I’m sure you will enjoy the bike much more! I hate those drop handlebars and not sure I’d ever be able to ride a bike with them.

    1. Thanks! I love it. My last several bikes have had drops because for some reason I thought it was a good idea and I would go faster. But I don’t want to go fast that way. I want to enjoy myself and be able to look around and I want other people to be able to see me too and hopefully be less likely to hit me.

      It has a double kickstand too so it’s set up in my office like a museum exhibit and I can’t stop running over to pose with it. Which reminds me, it’s time to do that again!
