And Another Thing....

This year, Tim was saving up his snow shovelling money to buy a new bike. He had a laundry list of features he wanted, most importantly, trigger shifters. (Whatever that means!) He figured he would have to buy a used bike, as new ones are probably out of his price range. He had arranged with Uncle John to send any info on used bikes he saw for John to comment on.
Well, last week we came accross a great deal at Toys R Us - a brand new bike for a really good price-$100 off regular retail! With a little help from us, he had enough to buy a new bike!
Art and Tim headed off in the van and came home with this beauty:

26" frame, 21 speeds, disc brakes, trigger shifters, front shocks... and a partridge in a pear tree! So he is pretty happy, and waiting rather impatiently for the weather to warm up! He has taken it out a couple of times already, but it is stored in the laundry room for now, so it's a bit difficult to get at.

That looks like a great bike. I hope he has a very good lock for it. Joanne C.

He does have a lock for it, which he will use. It's different when you pay for something with your own hard-earned money!

That is quite the bike. It will come in handy at camping!

Much nicer than the bike I have...which is a few bikes put together into one...all of which were free...
