I decided last night that instead of getting my bike fixed right away or when I get money I want to go to the thrift store where we saw that 10 speed road bike for $20 and see if they still have it. I’ve wanted to have 2 bikes at the house so if Darrin ever decides he wants to go bike riding for weight loss then we can go together.
I also wanted a 10 speed road bike because that’s what the majority of the people are riding on the bike trail. I think that a 10 speed is a lot faster because it’s lighter and it will give me less pain in my legs, I think.
I still want to fix the handlebars on my mountain bike but just when I get the money that’s all. I don’t want to fix it myself because I really don’t know what I’m doing. You gotta take the rubber grips off of the handlebars first and I just don’t want to do that because they have the roadmaster logo on them. I also would like to just bring it in to the bike store so they can look at it to make sure everything is in good condition.
My mountain bike can keep the lock on it and the lights with the generator because I might want to ride that to the store (when it’s fixed) at night and I’ll need the lights and the lock. But I will transfer the computer over to the 10 speed and the frame bag. The frame bag really doesn’t work in the mountain bike because the frame is too small for a frame bag. I was barely able to keep my water bottle on it because with the bag there the water bottle was sticking out and I’ve been terrified that it would eventually pop out into traffic.
I’m actually looking forward to getting a 10 speed road bike because I think it would be easier to ride and I think I would go a lot faster which would mean that I would burn much more calories. If I went faster I could probably ride the 18 miles in a lot shorter period of time and burn a ton of calories in the process. And rest less. Yes, I’m very excited about this.
