Hey, That’s My Bike!

Sometimes you can get what you want… even when you’re late to the party.

I am slightly bike obsessed. You may have noticed here and here… So ever since I’ve been working at IKEA, I’ve wanted to get a hold of the bike that was given as an Xmas gift (the Christmas right before I started) two years ago.

IKEA coworker bikes.

During a casual conversation with a coworker I was offered two of the IKEA bikes and I jumped at the chance. So now I have them sitting in the living room. One of the bikes needs air in the tires and they both need more comfortable bikes seats so I’m going to have to do some shopping. 🙂

Razor Adult Helmet, $19.99 @ Target.com

Schwinn Soft & Wide Bike Seat @ Target.com

I’m still hoping to get one of the Schwinn Meridian Adult Tricycles but I’m looking forward to spending some of my days off cruising down a couple of local trails like the BPA and King County Interurban on my new to me IKEA bikes!

All Reality Bites references* aside, springtime is nearly upon us and what better way to get out and enjoy the upcoming weather than on two (or three) wheels?

Here are some really nice looking, classic bicycles and tricycles to feast your eyes on (and from least to most expensive).

Bicycles:
Cream 3 Speed – Schwinn
Aluminum 5 Speed Unisex – Kronan
Granturismo Donna – Abici
Sonnet Bliss – Pashley

Tricycles:
Manhattan Trike – KHS Bicycles
Picador – Pashley

I would love to own the Abici bike but my budget is more in Schwinn territory! It’s definitely a goal of mine to buy one this year and when I get it, I’m going to add on a bell and basket to trick it out. Do you have a cruiser or adult tricycle? How have you knitted yours out?

*the title of this post is named after the band Ethan Hawke’s character was in in Reality Bites. If you like grungy garage music, check out their song (with Ethan really singing the vocals) from the soundtrack – I’m Nuthin’. And I think I just put an expiration date on myself with that!
