getting closer

We've got the bikes at Xmas.

Last week I bought a helmet from a LBS I really wanted to buy the bikes from, but couldn't make a deal. So at least I did a token amount of business with them.

Wife got her helmet and we bought the car rack yesterday from the "bike" bike shop.

Apparently, not too many people buy bikes and put them on lay-away for 4 months like we did. When I told the sales girl only "we have the bikes on layaway", she said, Oh you must have bought the specialized Elites, they came in last week".

How'd she know that!

Down to a pump and a computer.

We're gettin' there!

Can't wait to hit the canal path.

Wait, you got Specialized bikes, computers, pump, etc but aren't willing to repair a flat tire? There's something wrong with this picture.

And Jesus looking upon them saith, "With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible." - Mark 10:27
