Hey! Check out my new set of wheels! I am now the proud owner of a Felt Bicycle.
Having had my old bike for over 20 years, it was about time for a new one. I hinted to John that a bicycle would be a great gift for my three "events" next May (Mother's day, anniversary and birthday) because he always frets about what to buy me. In early summer, we happened to come across the exact bicycle that I had researched and wanted, in just the right size to fit my tall stature. So my sweet husband decided to get it for me a year early. Thank you, John!
I ride my bike just about every day, especially in the nice weather. It came with a carrier rack over the back wheel, so I strapped on the largest basket I could find which can accommodate small packages being shipping out from my Etsy shop. Most days, you'll find me pedaling to the post office in town.
My new bicycle is Felt's Café 8 Women's Deluxe model. The frame is navy blue lightweight aluminum tubing with a relaxed geometry for a comfortable riding position. I love its retro aluminum fenders and cup holder! Plus, it comes equipped with a comfy leather gel and foam saddle, leather handle bars, and a clip-on leather saddle bag. I even like the vintage-inspired logo on the front.
My sweet new ride has eight speeds to make getting around town easy along with providing the performance for faster fitness rides. Oh, I almost forgot to mention — it even has a small built-in safety bell! Speaking of safety, I always wear a bike helmet. In my twenties, I hit a rock in the road and fell off a bike without a helmet on. Not fun!
There is just one more thing I'd like for my beautiful new bicycle — a colorful crocheted dress guard for the back wheel, just like the ones I shared with you here.
Now I'm off to the post office!
