I ♥ my Bicycle
My new bike - Charge Tap from Cyclic Bikes on Pin Oak Crescent
I first saw my new bicycle about three weeks ago when I popped into the local bike shop for a service. I spotted the bike, eyed it off, remarked how nice it looked, and was pretty much a lost cause after Evan the shop owner suggested I take it for a spin.
So, I spent the next two weeks thinking about it and trying to justify the purchase. I had been riding a heavy mountain bike to work every day and managed to convince myself that I do indeed need a proper commuter since I'm not climbing mountains. Plus Moo has been pretty good to me over the xmas period.
And I am SO glad I did. I love my new bicycle. It's simple, lightweight, has hub gears and I'm much more likely to ride it than my old bike. Which means less driving. And that's a HUGE plus to me and our planet ;)
Charge Tap - that saddle is more comfy than it looks
Charge Tap - 8 speed gear hub - how cool!
I highly recommend!
