So the big purchase does not involve an item of clothing
+ a rush of blood to the head!
I decided today suddenly that I wanted a new bike. This would be my fourth bike in 12 months (is this insanity?)
My last bike was such a letdown.. it had issues, but what can you expect for such a basic model!?
Plus it was riddled with broken parts after nick borrowed it for the last couple of months... brakes were non existent, bike damn dangerous!
Our his n hers bikes from the Bicycle Centre in Prahran. Thought i was being so sensible buying a cheap hybrid, but it only lasted a few months!
My previous was a hipster retro stepthrough from the 70s... but the gears are in the centre of the handlebars and so hard to change.
But alas, gear system that is begging for an accident!
The one before that was my single gear, heavy as a truck... and almost impossible to move.
So rather than paying a fortune to service a substandard bike i think is ugly, I decided it was better to invest in a good bike. And that I did..
This time- I have gone with a Giant city bike.. a lil retro, without being hipster (aka wanky) but it's solid and beautiful, and stylish in a metallic olive green!
