I left my commuter bike at home this morning. It was too nice out to take the bus.

Thanks guys. I'm afraid the vintage bike bug has bitten me again, but so far I'm not having much luck finding anything in my town. But if I do you can be sure I'll post it!

Every once in awhile I let myself enjoy a freshly baked torpedo... especially when it goes so well with smoked gouda and prosciutto.

I checked there the other day, but amazingly there was nothing in my size. I mean, there were plenty of bikes in my size, just not what I was looking for.

Oooh that looks fantastic!

Edit: I also JUST noticed your Pugsley has drop bars. Not sure how I didn't see that before, but it's awesome. And naturally I'm a fan of the rear derailleur.

I just swapped them this afternoon... the flat bars had me sitting too upright and my back was paying the price and after I slammed the stem a little I slammed some Limonatas.

Man I'm going to have to make a trip to the deli tomorrow. Pair that up with a cucumber, onion & tomato salad and that's a perfect summer post bike ride lunch! (looks like I'll be swinging by the produce stand on the way home too lol)

Today the Pug served as my personal mobility device... went to pick my daughter up from the pet shop and hung out with one of the babies who is pretty fearless.



It was tempting to take the Pug for a spin through the mall after it closed...
