I’ve ordered a new bike today.
On Tuesday I went in to one of our Tavistock LBSs, and asked them to do a bit of work on my folding bike. I also took out a Super Galaxy they had on show for a spin.
Today I went back to collect the folder. Derek, the shop owner, was there, and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse on the Super Galaxy. So I’ve put down a deposit on it, and will collect it as soon as I’m back from ApacheCon.
It’s been far too long since I’ve had a decent-quality road bike, and I’ve still got the chronic problem of nowhere good to keep it. Its first main task is to help with finding a new home, with bike space.
