I did it. I went wild. I've been thinking about doing this for a LONG time now, and it's break, and supposedly spring and soon summer, so I finally did it. Nothing will ever be the same!

Go ahead. Ask about my new rack. /nod Looks VERY good, doesn't it!

I also just finished Haruki Murakami's Kafka on the Shore. Darned good book! I could get used to this break thing.

Excitement tomorrow!!! Meanwhile, I'm going to go out and put the newness to use with joy!

    Bardiac, you've got the sweetest looking rack I've seen in a long time. Heh.

  2. Hey, I just bought my own bike for the first time ever. (I mean, I know how to ride a bike, but the last people to buy one for me was my parents.) I think I'll stick to road biking for now, but have fun with your new rack! (Are you a mountain biker?)

    With your neighbor's snowblower and your new rack, you've got quite the steamy blog :) Nice rack, by the way.

  4. Have a good time!!

  5. a said, Thanks! I keep looking at it thinking, WOW, I almost look like I know what I'm doing with a bike now.

    Ianqui, Good for you! My bike is a street ten speed from the mid 80s, as stripped and light as I could afford at the time (no kickstand, etc). I'm FAR too unathletic to do much in the way of mountain biking. Our local trails are pretty much paved and fairly easy grades (this being the midwest and all, it's not like we're doing the Tour de France through the alps!)

    abd anonymous, You have a dirty mind! (I approve!)

    Thanks, Lisa!

    I tried it out yesterday for real, first by taking a friend's bike to the bike shop on it, and then I took mine to the trailhead and went for a short and COLD ride. It was GREAT and so much easier than stuffing the bike in and out of the back of the wagon.
