Ok y'all, just take a look at this bike site. Bike site as in bicycle, not bike site as in motorcycle. ;)
I've decided that I would like to buy a bike with my graduation money, as my bike is, um, broken, and was built for someone 6' tall. I think a bike would be infinitely useful on a college campus, and just for tooling around San Antonio (which is where Trinity is ... have I even mentioned that I'm going to be going to Trinity University in the fall? Hopefully I have.). I won't have a car, so I'm pretty sure I'll need a bike. Plus, I'm a little opposed to the idea of owning a car in the first place, just because I'm weird and I'm worried about the environment. My goal is to eventually live somewhere where I won't need a car at all. *cough, New York!, cough*
Now, about these awesome bikes. They're road bikes, which I like the idea of. I've had mountain bikes for most of my life, but I don't really think I need one, seeing as I'm not so into mountain biking. What, going UP hills? No no, I wanted to go DOWN hills. Haha!
Besides being road bikes, these bikes are freaking awesome! Just look at them! They come in a gazillion makes and colors, and you can customize them like crazy. Plus they're decently priced. Sure, they're $500 and up, but compare that with fancy-shmancy mountain bikes, and you've got yourself a deal.
I've got my eye on quite a few of the different styles, including the Amsterdam Classic and Amsterdam Original, the Townie Balloon, and pretty much any of the Cruisers. SO COOL!
I'm looking into these guys pretty seriously, especially since school freaking starts in 2 months. Plus I'll be on vacation for all of July. So yeah, I need to get a move on with my bike shopping (and laptop shopping!).
Anyways, I just thought that these bikes were too cool to keep to myself. Check them out and tell me what you think of them. :)
