the boots go well, and a girl does have to accessorise.

and hold on here- couldn't she buy any healthy food? MEAT (grrrrr),
more MEAT, frosted flakes, cap'n crunch, high fat milk, frozen pizzas,
you know- the good stuff.

I tend to do this myself - ie. measure the value of cycling trips be it to work or to the grocery store based on how much gas was saved. Congrats on your new Edgerunner. I noticed that electric-assist battery under the rear deck, immediately. That bike is going to be a beast for hauling all kinds of stuff. Your wife looks ecstatic, as she should be. Great bike!

Question Edgrunner

Is your wife still enjoying her Edgerunner? I'm (impatiently) waiting for mine to arrive from ebikes.ca. How does it ride? Where did you get yours?
