My Schwinn is probably jealous of the new bike sitting in the garage, though. That bike got all the attention when I got it – a lot of cleaning, some tuning up, several joyrides to test out different adjustments.
I felt like turning to caress my poor little Schwinn and assure it that everything was all right. I just got it a friend.
At least they’re both girl bikes. I won’t have to worry about a litter of baby bikes showing up in a dark corner of the garage.
