so as I mentioned in my last post, I got a pretty epic deal on a vintage Schwinn bike at a garage sale. it seemed to good to be true, and turns out, it sorta was.
i noticed when buying it that the gear thingy was broken but when I test-rode it seemed to ride fine. when I took it for a ride through our neighborhood the other night, it felt glorious at first.. it seriously had been so long since I'd been on a bike ride and it made be oh-sohappy. but as soon as there was any sort of incline at all (I mean any), it was not happening. It ended up being an epic workout when what i was looking for was a leisurely, peaceful ride and a chance to clear my head. all that to say, I am still on the market for a bike. I think I'll just get this one, what do you think? it pretty much screams my name. as you can expect, the price tag does not.
a girl can dream, right? it's back to craig's list I go.
