Shopping Trip

It just dawned on me that since I am going on a ride tomorrow, that means I can go shopping at the bike store! (yes, I know I am hardly going any distance at all, but I still get to go shopping!!) I need tubes, co2 cartriges, gu.......oh, maybe some new handlebar tape. Maybe they still even have that bright pink I wanted!!! Hmm...maybe this ride will be more fun that I though. I am such a geek. Is everyone like that about getting accessories from the bike store? I love going in and scoping out all of the bikes I can't afford and then finding all of the little random stuff that I don't have to have but want anyway. And the smell.....bike shops have a certain smell...and I love it! Mmm...nothing like the smell of new bike tires in the morning!

I agree. LOVE to go to the bike shop. I am pretty lucky, I get everything at cost - cuz of my b/f.

I always get giddy when I get to buy something new that is bike related. I don't shop in bike shops very often except for the essentials like tubes and cartridges because the selection usually sucks for women. I do the internet mostly - still fun though.

I love the smell of bike shops. I love buying stuff at bike shops. It is a problem, actually. :)
