You mock-a my bike, I break-a you face II

OK, so I didn't buy the last quirky looking bike I wanted. Now I Really, really want this one.

Is the argyle too much? Tell me it's not...

For that much money you can buy a decent starter roadbike (like mine), which can be improved bit by bit. After the CSO's recent experience, are you really thinking about getting back into cycling activity, and making it more likely for him to do so? Could I interest you in buying a large building in New York City instead, or just the Brooklyn Bridge?

But Electra does make decent road bikes. They just make road bikes that sacrifice a certain amount of efficiency for comfort.

I'm never going to be one of those people who, say rides a few hundred miles on a cycling vacation, but if I had a comfy bike that felt good to ride, I might ride it to the store ever now and again.

One hopes.

Your point about theCSO is well-taken. That said, one must get back on the horse (or bike) sometime.

Wow, that is cool. Do you have to pedal that?

That was a SmartCar joke, kids.

Gosh, CC, that looks a whole lot like the bike I got for my birthday in 1950. Go for it!

Can't you just get the SmartCar a new argyle paint job?

I would have supposed that for lapsed Presbyterians like yourself, argyle would be almost de rigeur. You know, the John Knox heritage an' a' that.

OH, I _LIKE_ the idea of getting the SmartCar a new argyle paint job. But I vote for pink.

Not pink: yellow, purple and green.
