At work I'm known as the one that is crazy over bikes. The one that was nuts enough to spend $$$$ on "just a bike". I guess with all of my excitement over feeling better and getting giddy over the warming weather it started to catch on.
My buddy had pulled his Raleigh hardtail out of the garage and started to eyeball it. He has been asking me lately about how to adjust the front der. I told him I could do it for him but we can never find a time where we would both be able to meet.
So yesterday I trapped him in the back of the warehouse and told him to call one of my favorite LBSs right then and there. He made an appt to get a tune up, since it has been a looooooooong time since he rode that thing.
He just called me. Not only did he get a full tune up, but he also got slime tubes, a helmet, gloves, and other things that I had mentioned might be useful to him. He took the bike from his house to work just to see how long it would take.
Looks like he will be commuting from now on. He is sooooo stoked about it!!! YAY!! *does happy dance*
So I guess I won't be the only "bike dork" around.
That's the second person this month I got into riding their bike more and commuting.
