I'm a bit tearful. I sold my bike. I love my bike - the comfort, the look and the memories but the truth is I've outgrown it. It was purchased for me as a gift (Thanks Jim) during the Minneapolis bus strike and it was a good get around bike but given how much I've stepped it up - I need something more.
I found a buyer on Craigslist. He seems like he'll be a good owner (as if I'm putting the bike into foster care or something). I was very sad about saying goodbye to the bike. Until I got the cash. Then I was not so sad.
The bike I'm riding now is a RALEIGH. I love that. I think I rode a RALEIGH as a kid. Maybe I was just destined.
