I see a new bike in my future…

I think it’s time. My old bike (Norman…..aaaaw, sweet Norman) is probably going to have to retire soon. It’s 12 years old. A 12 year old beginner level Giant road bike with numerous crashes will not carry me too much further. Norman the bike

Today on a 20 mile ride it felt…. I don’t know, weird. Have you ever driven a car that “pulls” to one side? Like the alignment is not quite right? That’s how it felt today. I’ve got close to 3000 miles on it, so it’s probably time. It also started making this rubbing noise – like the brakes or something was rubbing the tire. Kinda’ like a car. My car is 17 years old! I really do keep things for a long time and it’s an investment to buy something big. And road bikes are NO joke with the cost! They are so fancy shmancy now.

Things don’t last forever. God forbid my iPhone lasts more than a couple of more months….I mean it *HAS* been about 2 years, wouldn’t want it to work beyond 2 years. That’s just crazy talk. : /  {huge sarcasm there}

I guess bikes don’t last forever either! My husband just decided to break apart his college bike (think Cannondale, 1993 or so) and keep the frame for “art” on the wall. Great idea, but man, it took forever to let that go! Bless his heart.

Anyway….one day, new bike, coming my way.
