The Bike Friday has arrived and is assembled!




Murphy's Law for a new bike purchase: After weeks of eager anticipation, the bike will be shipped the day your calendar is the fullest! The bike arrived at 3:05pm in Wakonda via UPS. Assembly commenced after other obligations were fulfilled at 8:45pm (that's ashes,not grease on the forehead). Bike assembled in less than an hour. I can hardly wait to take it for a ride! With the weather forecast it may be a few days. I might have to ride circles in my basement in the mean time!
Two quick releases and the bike folds up - this will allow Charlie and I to combine our hobbies and enjoy them together when we take our car-bike trips this summer!

That is one sexy paint job Cathy! I'll bet Charlie was thinking and/or saying, "That's it? I don't get to assemble any more on this bike???"
Congrats, she/he is a beaut!

Yes! The power raspberry looks great. I have to put a seat back on one of my orange Fridays and check the air in the tires and I'm ready for a BF ride. Both of my Fridays have spent the last 4 months against the wall in my bedroom. Let me know when you are ready for a Friday ride.

I'm meeting Mary Jean (remember her from TDK?) in SF some weekend in May. She has a new recumbent and we're going to try out each other's bikes. That might be a good time to get together for a Bike Friday and Friends ride!
