Why I love my mom:
She is a natural bargain hunter and spends lots of her time on the weekends looking for deals at garage sales. When I started wrenching she was delighted to be able to add old bicycles to the list of things she was hunting for. Well this weekend she did pretty well for me. She's coming by in the truck today to drop these off, I haven't seen them yet. Pics will come soon.
1. A small green Eaton's Glider with working front/rear generator. Bought from a little old lady who was the original owner.
2. Some kind of run of the mill commuter bike. She doesn't know what it is, but says it's late 80's/early 90's and in perfect condition. She guesses I won't even have to fix anything (where's the fun in that?).
3. And the crown jewel: a Miele road bike that is in pieces (that she got for free). What I managed to get out of her about this so far: the frame is lighter than anything she has felt before, the RD says Campagnolo, one set of wheels (came with two) say Dura Ace on the hubs and Mavic on the rims, the shifter triggers say Dura Ace. It's aparantly in rough shape, but I'm still salivating. I hope the frame is my size.
Feels like christmas.
