A couple of weeks ago I got myself all set up with a brand new bike (no fixey here) and a baby seat for our L'il E. I've been riding the same mountain bike since I was 15 so I was in desperate need of a "grown-up" bicycle.
I stopped by Bikes on Wheels (Queen St) one Saturday morning just to check the bikes out and two hours later I happily left with the Linus Mixte 3 in cream, a Bobike maxi City seat for E and a baby bike helmet. Now that's some smooth sales work! Honestly though, the staff at Bikes on Wheels were so informative, let me test ride almost every bike and didn't make me feel pressured to buy. I liked them.
Anyway, back to my new Linus. First, it's amazing - so light weight, an ultra sweet ride and has a steel frame that absorbs TO's bumby roads - and second, it's super stylin'! The Dutchi 3 was also pretty cool, but just a little too upright for me.
L'il E and I went for our first cruise together yesterday, as you can see (above) he wasn't that impressed, but he'll get over it. He liked the bike ride he just really hated wearing that enormous helmet.
