naughty madre

23 Jul

i have a friend who has a particularly naughty mother. he told me a story once about how she consoled him after a break up. she said: the best way to get over a break up is to get under another man. now, he’s not interested in men. but you get the picture. why publicize this tender tale?

because in order to get over the old french bike i had to get on top of a new one. meet the italiano:

1978ish italvega

    Yay! That is a lovely frame; some vintage Campagnolo parts, a set of shiny wheels and a wool cycling jersey in celeste blue and you’ll be the shade of Fausto Coppi. I’m actually quite envious. Trust me: you did the right thing.

      yay! cool, so glad to hear you say that…as soon as i saw the italvega i felt pretty sure about it. it’s in the shop right now. i’m getting all dialed and it should be up and on the road next week. i was going to say you have no idea how exciting it is but thought better of it…because i imagine you know exactly how exciting it is. i’m googling fausto coppi. thanks nick!

        You’re right; getting a new bike still makes me feel like a kid at Christmas. Doesn’t matter what kind it is; any bike that makes you feel that way is the right one for you. Looking forward to pictures!
