Novara Buzz. It’s REI’s commuter. Nothing fancy. I bought from a dude on Craigslist. It might be stolen. But Karma is weird like that. Member when my bike got stolen a few years ago? It’s just a two year newer version of the same bike. Different color. And cheap enough to make me think it’s hot.
a day late to the pub.... but I gotta tell ya... I'm back in the saddle. It has been too long since I've regularly ridden my bike to work. I am in full blown endorphin afterglow right now. My mind is so clear and I feel so focused. I hate that I let life get in the way of a good bicycle commute. My new commute is about 40% longer than the previous one, so I'm still working up to it, but I'm fortunate to have a coworker who lives nearby. For months we have been carpooling, but now that I'm back in the saddle, I'm riding in Monday, hitching a ride home Monday night and Tuesday Morning, and then riding the chariot home Tuesday night. Lather, rinse, repeat on Wed-Thur. It couldn't work out better. I have the parking pass for the parking garage, so it's a bonus for him, and I get a free ride home until my conditioning is up to snuff. VICTORY. It's not as cushy as my old commute either - a lot more time on surface streets than before which leaves me feeling a bit more vulnerable, but I'm not riding through the war zone like kleinbl00.
Anyway - happy trails to you all. Keep on rockin' in the free world.
