New Wheels!

On Saturday, we went to get a new part for Martijn's bike.

The sprocket that the chain goes around was in pretty bad shape. By bad I mean: "Wow, it's a freaking miracle the chain could even still catch on this thing."

A Very Broken Bike Sprocket

We went to the bike shop, and left with a little something extra.

Yes my friends, that is indeed the most expensive bicycle sprocket you will ever see.

Now I have a bike that's actually the right size for my crazily long legs!

With as much as you bike around your town you desrvie a bike that fits your legs... I would look like a toodler on your bike with my crazy short legs...(we are an odd pair of friends)... And holy cow I have never seen a sprocket that worn out...

Holy smokes, that sprocket is crazy! Yay for a new bike! I figure, it is something you use all the time, so you are just making a really good investment, right?

Beautiful bikes! So nice that they are new and so, (knocking on wood,) you should not have to be spending the time repairing them like you have been on your old ones.

I had a similar experience, I went to the School Districts office to pick up a box of continuous feed paper- 2800 sheets for $5.50 and came home with not only the paper but 2 emac computers for the kids to do school work on. They were $50 a piece, so my $5.50 turned into $105.50! But I figure I got some real expensive paper and 2 free computers! lol.........

Have a wonderful day.

Very nice looking bikes! I'd be ashamed to show you my sprocket, it probably looks new after almost 10 years and I have the love handles to prove it :)
