I got a bike!

I've been wanting a bike for a long time to get around the city more easily, and just to ride for fun. So today I finally bought one! Ain't she a beaut? She rides very smoothly. I'm in love. I should probably think of a name.

Note: Mariella is my new favourite name.

I don't know if it's a boy or a girl, actually. On the one hand, I'd feel awkward riding a dude. On the other, I'd feel slightly misogynistic riding a chick.

Mya Jamila

Pay no attention to Haya. She is so a Mariella.

Mya Jamila

I know a guy named Storm.

it occured to me recently that i haven't enjoyed cycling since i was promoted from bmx to big boy bike, so i'm thinking about getting a bmx again some day. i can't do anything fun on a mountain bike.

Mya Jamila

Leon, isn't a bmx a mountain bike?

noodlezoop

I'm shocked that you haven't already named it Yoshi or Wind-Up Boot

Mya Jamila

Dam. That backfired didn't it?

a bmx is a boys moto cross bike. similar shape to a mountian bike but a lot smaller and lighter and with pedal brakes instead of hand brakes.

Don't do what I did yesterday: hit black ice and faceplant going a good tick.

Amazingly I'm ok, just a crappy start to the morning

that's definitely not on my list of things to do. it's supposed to snow, sleet, ice, and rain tonight into tomorrow, so i probably won't be riding again for a couple of days.

Sir_Minimus

"boys moto cross bike?" that is not what bmx stands for. and the hand vs pedal brakes would defintely depend on if you bought the bike at woolworths or an actual bike shop.

Is it wrong that your pictures make me want to marry you?
Especially when your holding a variety of stuffed animals.

Hahaha.

I want to call it something like Semaphore.

AllisonInvisible

Call it Falkor. It's the Luck Dragon from The Neverending Story. =]

When I was 10, I used to call my bike Banana Seat Bob, even though it was very pink with a strawberry theme.

I also noticed your bike is seriously lacking some handlebar streamers. WHAT IS UP WITH THAT?

I assume that you shall invest in some playing-cards for the spokes? The most important part of any bike is its ability to annoy pedestrians.

i'm working on some good streamers!

and of course i'll get a deck of cards.

If I lived in a big city, I'd totally want to be one of those bad ass bike messenger guys that delivers stuff and stuff.

Mya Jamila

I stand staunchly by Mariella.

No account?
