Introducing Parker

Sometime during the summer someone broke into our garage and stole my old bike. This made me very angry as i had just started riding again, and there were 3 other bikes in the garage that were not touched. I did not really have the money to buy a new bike that was suitable. I test rode a lot of cheaper bikes trying to find one that felt right, but they all felt wrong. Eventually i realized that the best bike for me was the bike that i had before, so i scrounged the money together and bought the new version of the old bike. The old bike never had a name, and she was quite mean to me. The new bike… his name is Parker…Image

Introducing Parker. Shiny new bike with most of the new shiny accessories that needed to be replaced. I have yet to get puncture proof tires, so i might be in for an adventure of flats, and i have yet to put fenders on as with the rear rack the worse of the splashing will be blocked.

And then i sewed a bag!
