Sunshine and sunpower
That’s my pretty new light. I saw her blink a little when I brought her into the garage tonight. It’s a solar light that charges during the day and then flashes when you ride at night. (although, having said that, I don’t know how it knows if you are riding or not… maybe it is flashing in the garage right now) It means no matter how spacey I am, I will always have a back light.
It was a pretty long and hot ride (mostly down hill) to the bike shop, so while they sorted out the light, Momo and I had cold noodles. The mushrooms were DELIGHTFUL.
I snapped this Kuroneko delivery bike near the shop. They are everywhere, but I really like/respect them. Especially in this heat. We have the mountain bike delivery guys with messenger bags weaving through traffic too, and while they are serious guys, these guys seem a little more dignified.
I don’t own this. But I’m thinking I might like to. It’s not as sweet as the black one I got bid out on in the Yahoo auction, but this is a 1985 post office bike. It’s not so common to see a girls version. I think with some new handle grips and maybe a seat upgrade it could be pretty cool. I don’t know. I’m not sure if I want something that new. It’s a toss up between condition and history for me. I think it might be fun to have a post office bike. But if I get this, I give up on the idea of a 1930s bike… Maybe a 1930s bike is out of my current league anyway.
