This is the bicycle that I am dreaming of, my new job is close enough that I could ride it to work, so I can almost justify such an extravagant purchase. I am trying to cut down on gas, not so much because I care about the environment, but because I am poor, so it will be bicycles to work, and trains to school. It will be almost like I live in Europe! True, I do already have a bicycle, and on days when it isn't unbearably, sweltering hot I do ride it to the library and other such close locations. The problem is, it's a mountain bike, and is rather uncomfortable, and the tire keeps coming off, which fills one with a sense of impending doom whilst riding. While I do enjoy little jolts of adventure in my life, I think that the cars on the road do the job admirably. Oh beautiful bicycle, how I pine for you.
