over the Masi Speciale Commuter. Drool drool drool slobber drool.
The backstory: I’ve been wanting a a bike for running errands for a long while now. I’ve been riding my bling bling bike, but I hate to leave it locked up anywhere for fear of it getting stolen — it’s a really sweet bike. Jason’s car is on the fritz, and it’s going to cost almost as much as what it’s worth to get it fixed — so he’s been using my car. SO, I think this is a sign. Went to the bike shop in our neighborhood last week and saw this single speed, steel, room for fenders and larger tires, retro-Italian beauty and fell in love. Thinking of ordering it this week. Oh and I did I mention it has a lugged fork? Drool.
Family members who gave me bike money for Christmas this year and last year — I think I’m finally ready to spend it!
Edit: Added a link to the bike shop for Nora.
