There is a slight glitch with my bike. Though I was on a CANADIAN site, the cost quoted was actually in US dollars which bumps my Nirve cruiser to $630
I was still considering it until it turns out the one I want “Orange Julius” is not available in Canada. WTF? Canadians don’t like orange? Is there some import/customs law that prohibits items that are a blinding shade of orange from crossing the boarder? I’m not spending over 600 bones on something that is NOT EVEN THE RIGHT COLOUR! Sooooo…. Steve and I checked out our local used bike shop on Saturday. It was closed but right there in the window was my DREAM vintage cruiser. We debated breaking in and just taking it but clarity prevailed. There is a note taped to the bike that we couldn’t read through the window and if it says “sold” I will kill someone (and then steal their bike.)
It kinda looks like this, but imagine it with a basket & a shiny silver bell. My bike will be the less flashy, less pretentious version of what I originally wanted. Like the “yokel” cousin that you are never sure will behave appropriately in public. It will only be about $50 so I will spend the remaining $580 on hookers and blow.
Updated*** Apparently the sign is “sold” but she hasn’t picked it up yet- She has till Wednesday otherwise IT’S MINE!!!! (Stay away from that bike bitch!)
