This has been a busy week for me in regards to bikes moving through my life. Exactly one week ago today I sold the v1 Mundo to Derrick in Toronto. Then yesterday I received an email from someone who saw my trike listed on craigslist; they came by today and purchased it. The above picture is of the new owners of the trike: Jason, Andreea, and daughter. In the same way that I felt good about selling the Mundo to Derrick in Toronto because he was a "bicycle person," I felt the same today when I sold the trike to Jason and Andreea. As they looked at the trike Jason had a gleam in his eyes as he commented how he was going to restore it and the different modifications he planned on doing. To see pictures of the trike a couple years ago, before it sat outside under a tarp all winter, click here (I don't have enough room for my bikes, nor do I use them all, hence the reason I'm selling a few...I may be selling a tandem if anyone is interested).
But the big news of my week is that my shiny new v3 Mundo finally arrived today, and I couldn't be happier. It took me about an hour to put together, then I took it on about a 4 mile ride. All I can say thus far is that I love it (it's amazing what a few less pounds and many more gears can do). I'll post a full review of it in a week or so after I've become fully accuainted with it. Here it is below (I love the matte black color).
