|The Shipyard was the most necessary tool.|
As far as beater bikes go, I'm the worst when it comes to something like this. It's in my blood to want to upgrade and constantly make things better than they need to be, which is why my timeshare ride still looks as pretty as it does. Some people can abuse a bike until parts fall off, then they just replace them. I lack the willpower to do this. I should have just ridden this thing until the tires disintegrated into a sad little pile of dust, but crap like this keeps me up at night. At least, it does with bikes - I wish I could be this careful about things like keeping my house clean or remembering to turn off the lights before leaving for two weeks.
It is a pretty bike.

It was also my dad's birthday, and he got a slew of awesome bike gear that he's loving so far. I'm pretty jealous of the tech compatible gloves, actually.
