I am looking for a new bike. a bike that I can increase my riding on. I bike that I can decrease my fears on. A bike that will make me feel pretty and get me where I need to go. I have the Townie which makes me feel super pretty and the Biomega that will absolutely get me where I need to go. I will find a bike that does both.
For inspiration and help on what exactly I should be looking for I have been using this post from Copenhagen Cycle Chic and this post from Lovely Bicycles to guide me. I have been reading all of the cycle chic blogs and googling Dutch bike brands a-go-go. I am dragging the hubby to bike shops and making him explain what the parts of bikes are for aside from the bits that make it look pretty. I am having a tough time reconciling my needs and wants. I am nervous that I am going to end up with a bike that is either a pretty or functional. I am extremely picky about what I find attractive. I am drooling over a bike that I test rode this afternoon (which I will tell you all about tomorrow) however I don't know that it is the most practical bike for being in LA. But I cannot stop thinking about how lovely it is. What ever am I going to do?
