getting my bike on

February 5, 2008

Ever since I bought my new bike, I get so much more play from the bike mechanics. It almost always starts with “how do you like your Surly”, and from there it’s not unusual to be on the listening end of some crazy touring story about riding to California with one pannier or riding from Washington to Canada with a fanny pack.

I do think I’m sliding into some serious bike geekiness, something I think I mentioned earlier, because I’m trying to figure out if I can swing buying a back-up bike, especially after seeing this Raliegh.

    both of those bikes look really nice. i’ve been itching to get my bike in shape (and hence, get me in shape), especially since we’re seeing warmer weather here recently.
