New Bikes!

So, it turns out that Trek is having a sale right now... I guess I knew this but somehow didn't put 2 and 2 together until today. Anyways, we went in and were able to get Trek 1.1's for a combined $1150. Hers is a straight up replacement for her now stolen wedding gift bike, and mine is my first trek. We got her the same WSD model, so mine is gonna be the shiny blue one, hers will be a bit different.

Pics tomorrow!

You don't need locks if you keep them in your living room, where they belong.

Yeah no more overnight lockings to the truck. They come in every day regardless of plan.

Can't pick up the bikes tonight until I get off work. I got in REAL early so I can split ASAP to go get them.
