My New Bike

I finally did it! I bought the bike I've been dreaming of for years. It's an Electra Gypsy and it's ohhh soooo cute!

I first saw one in Grand Junction, Colorado years ago. It was parked outside of a little cafe. It was love at first sight and I haven't been able to get it out of my mind ever since. I would look at it every time I went to a bike shop. I talked about wanting least once a week. And, I dreamt of riding it around. My dream came true. Isn't it pretty?!

The graphics are so cute!

And the colors too...

I love the little basket and it's adorable fabric lining. It's so much fun to throw my stuff in the basket and go for a ride.

The bell is big, shiney and it sounds like a door bell. So fun!

The look, the colors, the design of this bike is sooo me!

Even the seat is cute!

I can't believe I have a Gypsy bike of my very own! I still love my mountain bike and plan to continue riding it but it's so much fun to just throw my stuff in the basket, hop on, and go for a ride without having to gather up all my riding gear (bike shorts, jersey, water pack, special shoes, helmet, etc.). And, being able to sit upright to look around and just cruise is oh so fun! It has only three gears but it seems to be working out perfect for riding around town. I've even been enjoying it at night, when the summer heat calms down and the roads are quiet. :-)

That's awesome, I haven't seen that model. I love my wicker basket on my bike too. Do you have a head and tail lite? Mine are powered by the motion of the back wheel. LOVE that seat!!!!
