......to add yet another steed to the stable.
A 2001 Rans Velocity-2 popped up at a very reasonable price. I don't have one of those yet, I don't need it, I don't have room for it, but I want it anyway.
I test rode a newer model back in 2007 and ended up with a Sun EZ Sport instead. I was quite impressed with both the Rans Velocity and the Rans Stratus, but as a beginner I felt a bit more comfortable aboard the Sun at the time. Now days I use the EZ Sport as a low speed neighborhood Cruiser and my higher end Tour Easy for longer rides.
My Tour Easy is above all the best ride I've ever had but it would be nice to have a back-up higher end bike, and this could very well be the one. I've been watching for a Stratus but the reviews I've seen puts the Velocity 2 at a slightly higher rating and again, the price on this baby is really very reasonable.
I have some small rumblings of a plan brewing in the back of my pea-sized little man-brain and I'm confident that if this bike stays on the market long enough I should be able to convince "She who needs to be listened to" that the world won't come to an end if I buy it.
Or maybe I'll just go out and buy it and to heck with the consequences....
Yeah right, look at the silly little man who thinks he's so brave.
