thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's bike

I have been doing A LOT of knitting. Knitting is like being a human ZX81 printer except it's quieter, fluffier and doesn't produce an eye-watering stench (providing you do it properly). I am an unstoppable knitting robot.
Kudos to Oxford Cycle Workshop for fixing my bike today, and giving it a good ol' tune up for the princely sum of £7. They even fixed my dodgy gears! In your face Sturmey Archer!
Despite this new lease of life, I have been entertaining the notion of cheating on my bike (shhhhh!). Feast your eyes on the MoFo below.

Oh MY!

That, my friends, is the Schwinn Stingray. I have been having regular wild imaginings of riding it - fantasies of me and my NEW bike speeding shinily through the streets. But what about my old bike? Am I to relegate my trusty steed to the depths of the bike shed, while I blatantly parade this Johnny-come-lately gleaming whore-bike in its face? I don't think so. Yet late at night I stare yearningly at pictures of this vehicular temptress. Hey, there's nothing wrong with looking, right?


  1. Can they not live side by side in perfect harmony. Like shoes one can never have too many bikes!

  2. Now you've made me want new SHOES as well. ;)

  3. You could knit yourself a Schwinn Stingray!!
    Combine your passions :)

  4. Oh. My. God. That idea is just TOO MUCH. :0
