When I lost Banana, my lovely yellow bicycle, I was very very very upset. I got a new bicycle dubbed Science for her silver beat up body and bought a rear basket from my friend. I painted the baskets yellow in honor of Banana.
Since Science isn't the cutest bicycle on the planet, I have been trying to spice her up a bit! So instead of hauling my groceries in the lame mismatched bags I have been using that are getting torn, I got these 2 adorable matching squirrel bags that fit perfectly in my rear baskets! They are cute, useful, recycled, sturdy, weather ready, and the perfect size!
My next mission will be getting a new chain (I was thinking yellow), new handlebar tape (blue?), repainting the baskets and eventually, hopefully, if dreams come true, painting her a nice aqua color like this bike! She really could be lovely with my money, time, and more care. Daydream color scheme:
This guy at the bike shop today said that she was ugly :( . In happy news I should and most likely will have my IMAC by the end of this month! I also am scoring a free printer from my basket friend! :) thanks to my BFF!
Have a lovely day and I will update as soon as I am able again. I need to share my birthday wishes soon!
