In for a tune up

Thursday, May 03, 2012

Well, it was time. The LHT has gone in for an overhaul. That bike has carried me for over 10,000 miles without so much as a broken spoke. Brian, my bike shop guy, told me I can probably get her back by Saturday. He hasn't seen her since I changed jobs in July of last year. He ordered the LHT for me in January of 2010. She came in at the end of March and the love affair was born. Our first ride was Saturday, 27 March 2010. A nice 50 miler. Well, here it is 10,000 miles later.

My wife just got her new Electra Townie last week. My hope is that she develops the same love for riding that I have. Her Townie already has a name, Ziva. Beautiful deep purple with white fenders, rear rack, and basket. I can't wait for our first ride together.

    It will be almost like a new bike when you get it back. Can't wait to get some of my bikes overhauled.

    You'll love your LHT even MORE after the tune up...had my Specialized in a few weeks ago and was AMAZED at the difference! The Townie's a cool bike...rented one a few years ago when in San Diego riding bikes with my sister out on the Silver Strand, Coronado Island. It had an almost recumbent-like position, with the pedaling angled significantly in front of my torso. DW is gonna love it I'm sure!

    I'm excited for you and your wife. Even if it's only one short 10 mile ride a week, it's you and her together. I've been trying to get my wife to participate but I think I'll have to let her ride with some of the girls in the Akron Bike Club to get her started. After 28 years of wedded bliss we don't quite communicate too well when it comes to 'education'. I can mentor, teach, etc. anyone but her. lol could be worse I suppose. At least she volunteers to help out at the club invitationals. (there's hope she'll ride one day)
