GF Jealous Purchase

Well she saw that I strode in with a bike, so she got the green bug and searched around to find her own.

After discounting some Nirve, cause you can't actually find any and a couple of Phats, she found a Novara Transfer on clearance.

Now we both have heavy steel mups. I do wish I had that dyno hub.

"Nirve," "Phats," "heavy steel mups." I don't have a clue what you're saying.

Congrats to her on the bike, though.

MUP = multi use pathway

Steel cause both our bikes are cromoly instead of aluminum

Thanks for the translation. I understood mups to be a multi-use path. I've never seen one described as steel before, or a bike that's intended for mup use as a "mup" itself.

Basically a Mup bike would be what I would term an old geometry road cruiser. Comfortable but not a beach cruiser. Seemed like a decent unit pictured for her.
