My new (sort of) bike

I got a road bike! I don’t know what kind exactly because it’s not the kind of thing that I care too much about, but it’s one of those thin, light road bikes with the down curved handles. Tan the Man, Tony, Andy, and I went to the TAPS bike auction this morning (7am- shoot me) and I didn’t think I was going to get a bike. I really only went because there was no one else to drive the guys. So while walking around the yard before the auction started I saw this really cute, red, girl’s road bike with baskets and I told Tony I’d be willing to pay up to $50 for it. So when the bike rolled onto the auction platform it sold for about $65. It wasn’t me who bought it. Much later on a blue, girl’s road bike came up and its front wheel was off and hanging on the handle bars and it looked really dirty but in good shape otherwise. I wanted it. I grabbed Tony’s bid card and with very little trouble and minimal opposition bought it for $25. 🙂 Yay!! I was kind of worried when I got it but it’s fine! The wheel snapped right back on, the chain slid very nicely onto the wheels- I could have ridden it away if the tires weren’t flat. The license is even good until the end of the year. Total steal.
