So, one of the thing I have been telling to people that I will do this year for sure was to get folding bike. And today, I finally did it!
I dropped by REI in Issaquah, as I got off my work early today. I was looking at this particular bike on the web, and there it was, on the stand at REI. After asking few questions, they offered me so I can take it out for test ride.
It has been close to 18 years since I last rode on bike, but amazingly, I didn’t have any hesitation or problem getting back to speed. After doing few back and forth in the short trail just behind the store in the gorgeous weather, it didn’t take too long to find that this is what I want. I felt GREAT!
Then I got back to the store, after some moment of thinking (financially speaking, it’s somewhat bigger chunk of money I’m spending!) I told the person there I will take it. While they are doing check on it, I have had storeperson show me around for additional accessories I’d need. I got bike lights, helmet, spare tube, portable pump with it, resulting about $540 in expenditure. (hopefully this will be best $540 I’m spending this year!)
As a folding bike, it folds,
