Mrs. Hill-Pumper's turn to get a new bike (with pics)
After me getting 2 bikes in the last 2 years, and my oldest daughter getting one also, it was my wife's turn. She has really not shown an interest in them, so I did not push her into it. Then when I was buying my cross bike, she saw one she kind of liked and said she might like to have one so she could ride with our daughter. I was of course overjoyed, but I still did not want to pressure her into something she did not want to do. I took her to a couple of bike shops that I trusted and let her pick out what SHE wanted. I know if she did not like it, she was not going to ride it. The only requirement that I had was that it needed to have enough gearing to make it up some of the hills around here. Other then that, it was her decision. After searching, she fell in love with a Specialized Globe 3 Camel in one of the nicest metallic red colors that I have seen. As a matter of fact, I'm a little jealous that my bikes are not that color. Anyway, she seems to be happy to have it and will be doing her first ride with our daughter tomorrow.
If I was not doing a monster training ride for my century next weekend, I would be going with them too.
So without any further ado, the pictures.
