bike shopping

by sam on 05/24/2008

Last month, I mentioned that I was in love with the Dahon Glide. Unfortunately, every time I’ve been to the website, it says that it’s not yet available for purchase.

So this week I finally decided to just e-mail the company and find out what’s going on. Apparently the bike was officially “released” about a week ago, but, of course, the closest retailer that has them in stock is out in the middle of Long Island. Because that’s convenient.

I’m a little bit wary about ordering a bike, even one as cute as the Glide, without trying it out first, so I’m going to try to hit Toga bikes this weekend to see if they can special order one for me…

Now I just need to figure out how to get my old, non-folding bike (that needs a tune-up) out of my apartment and up to my parents’ garage in Massachusetts.

That’s a puzzle for another day…
