    buyin the wife a bike tomorrow

    so today me my mom my brother and my kids were gonna go bike riding and my wife exspressed interest in riding so i was like cool .

    my first thought was "shes gonna ride it once and then never touch it again." so i wasnt really conserned with getting her something great so we went to walmart and found a bike she liked and bought it and we came home and adjusted it and filled the tires and went riding. but five minutes into riding her front tire exsploded

    soooooooo we took it back and got a refund but she liked her 5 minutes so we agreed if shes would ride fairly often with me id take her to the bike shop and get her a real bike ive got a trek hybrid and a giant mtn bike so we will just have to see what she likes tomorrow

    Thank god for that tire explosion - you'll now get a decent bike and your wife will think that any extra money is well worth it.

    Now - 'fess up. You sneakily pressed a tack half way into the tire before setting off, didn't you.

    we got her a trek 7000 like mine it was quadruple the price but at least i know its gonna be a good bike and she wont hurt herself because of the bike being substandard , if she hurts herself its gonna be because of something she did now lol. but i feel better about it
