Je Suis Sans Ma Bicyclette Du Monde (Mundo)
Mundo. The above photo is the bike with its new proud owner (he was nice enough to let me take his picture). The bike will now traverse the streets of the beautiful and bike-friendly city of Toronto. I've been trying to sell it for a little over a month, and I have to say that when I finally did it was somewhat bitter sweet...I really liked that bike; it might have been my favorite thus far. The good news is that it went to a good "bike home." The new owner has years of biking experience and multiple bikes, including a sort funky homemade long-john cargo bike. The bike is in good hands. But it's still odd to be sans Mundo. I've been riding my old Trek (aka, the mule) since yesterday. While I like this bike also (it's my all around-everyday-hauler-winter bike) it just seems so...well, short. I had a slight panic attack today when I wondered what I would do if I found myself in need of hauling something substantial (egads!). But I did hear from Ben at Yuba Bikes today that my new v3 Mundo was finally picked up by UPS, so I should receive it in a week or so...I'll keep you posted.
