I want to ride my bicycle.

I’ve been wanting a new bike for a while. I love my Trek 1.2 road bike and all. But with all those gears and everything, it’s meant for going fast on paved paths. I’ve been wanting just a single speed bike to just ride around on, especially since we’ve moved into our house. I’ve really been wanting to cruise around Northside, and get to explore our new neighborhood more. I couldn’t think of a better way to do that than from atop a bike. I’ve been looking at a lot, A LOT of bikes. I just wanted something stylish and reliable that wasn’t going to break the bank. I finally decided to order a Harper SS by Critical Cycles. I went with the Harper because it looked really stylish for the price point, and it has dual brakes, front and back. And unlike my Trek, it has riser handlebars that encourage a relaxed, upright riding position. When I got home from work today, it was waiting for me on our front porch…

I managed to get it out of the box…

That was the most difficult part of the assembly…

And about fifteen or so minutes later, I had a brand new bike…

I love the combination of the light blue frame with the white accents and the brown saddle and grips. I took it for a spin around the block, and it rides like a dream. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. It compliments Genifer’s Breezer really nicely without being too matchy-matchy…

I can’t wait to get them out on the road in Northside this weekend. I know we’ll definitely be riding them over check out to Bewilderfest at Urban Artifact Sunday evening. Hopefully, we be able to ride to check out Cincy Summer Streets in Northside as well. Or maybe a brunch. All I know is I’m really excited for us to go ride bikes around our new neighborhood. 🙂
