What's the Baker been doing?

The Baker's little Thanksgiving pie experiment has grown into a real live sustainable business!  Denverites can get Gabe's Pies by the slice at Geeze Louise coffee shop, Perk Hill coffee shop, Eis Gelato shop and get whole pies at Spinelli's Market.

A Sure Sign of Spring on the Front Range

Not the crocus, the snow!  One of the things I love most about living in Colorado on the Front Range is the spring snow.  Yesterday I was biking in short sleeves and no coat and this morning woke to a lovely blanket of the white stuff.  It will be gone by noon, if it's not already.

Mrs. Gale is For Sale

As much as it pains me to say it, I'm selling Mrs. Gale.  She's such a beautiful bike, building her was such a fun experience and I love her to pieces; and because of this love I want her ridden and not hanging in the garage waiting for her all too infrequent days in the sun.

Here are the details:
Gorgeous early 80's mixte made by Nishiki and recently converted to a single speed.  All dressed up with new components! She has a new sprung Brooks saddle, newsingle speed wheels (with flip-flop hub), new chain, new pedals, new coordinating cork grips and a new Wald basket which has been customized with coordinating wood slats.

In all reality, since completing her she's been only been ridden about 20 times.  The garage is packed so full of bikes, she's not going to work for my mother to ride and I just can't stand her to sit.  I'm asking $285 - firm - which is less than I put into her.

I will seriously consider a trade for a newer model, very-low step through, geared bike.  Something along the lines of an Electra Townie, Raleigh Circa or other newer model low step through. Grandma needs a bike and Mrs. Gale's step through height is a bit too high.
