My son came by this morning. His wife wanted to get back on her bike for Mother's Day and their kiddie trailer wouldn't attach to his carpet fiber road bike very well. He wanted the Felt beater bike that my grandson and I pieced together from our various family spares. The only things I bought new for that bike was handlebar tape and tires.
While he was here, he also mentioned that he and his wife would like to try our unused Santana tandem so I expect that to go shortly.
A different grandson's wife is in need of a bike. Fortunately for her, I happen to have a lightly used Schwinn Frontier that I rescued from the dumpster.
All tolled, that will bring me down to 3 diamond frame beaters of various types, a SWB recumbent, Mrs. Grouch's tadpole trike and the Screamer recumbent tandem. Don't have any interest in another bike at this time but - well - you know how it goes.
Oh - we met the son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter at a local park for a short ride. Life doesn't get any better than that. Happy Mother's Day!
