The Black Rider
I got me a new set of wheels...FROM HELL!!!
It's not like I have given in to the cult of fixies (that would be the death of me...no really...I would kill myself on one of those) but I really wanted something that wasn't killing me every time I had to get to the shop in a hurry. My other big bike, that I am keeping for transport purposes, is really heavy to ride which is nice when you are cruising but when you just want to get somewhere fast...well, then it's not really all that awesome.
The thought of a faster bike had been brewing in my head for a while but when I saw a picture of my friend Matthias' new black bike (also check out his crazy Bike crew) I was in love. I had just written him a mail, telling him that I was thinking about getting a faster bike, when I went for a walk with Lucifer and decided to go in and talk to the local bike shop about a bike for Amalie. That went so well that I decided to talk to him about something for me. I turn around and there is a black bike staring at me. It was a sign!! Nice, black, cheap and nothing too fancy but still made well. So without thinking to much about it (or at all) I heard myself say; "I'll take it!!"
So today he had finished it and given it the black handle that I wanted. Now, there still is a few things that could be made black but that might happen later. I would like to get rid of the fenders as well to make it look more simple and nice but since there most likely will be a lot of rain in the next couple of months, I think I will keep them on for now. Now I just have get used to ride on a real bike and I can't wait to take it for a real ride, full speed ahead with Goatwhore blasting in my ears...or maybe Judas Priest, painkiller!
