I'm on a bike!
The new tires and grips came today so I was finally able to ride my new swoopy mixte. After a few rounds of routine adjustments (seat, handlebars, etc.) I fell madly and deeply in love.
The tires are Panaracer Col de la Vie and I really like them. I was considering an all cream tire but since I decided to replace the white grips (which were in bad shape) and white cables all with black, I wanted a tire with black. They are very similar to the tires that came on the bike.
The back generator light works like a dream. We have a replacement front light on the way and someone locally has a rack which he thinks will be perfect. I think I'll also give her a shiny new chain.
Now, a name.....
