As some of you may know from my update post, I had taken my bike Jagger in to the shop to be fixed and still didn’t have him back yet.
Well, a couple of days later, I got a call from the bike shop saying I was going to need a whole new frame. They were going to call Jamis and see what they could do for me. From the inventory on the website, it looked like a new frame was going to be $1,300. ***Gulp*** A couple of days went by and I hadn’t heard anything from the bike shop.
Then I get a call from the owner of the bike shop saying they spoke with Jamis and they actually DO NOT have a frame for me. The only frame available is for their professional cyclists, which I am not. 😦 Rats!!! What the hell am I going to do? I need a new TT bike.
The next best thing that the bike shop could do is get me a brand new bike for the same price. They were looking at a Felt bike that would actually be a little bit of an upgrade from what I had.
I was desparate and needed a new bike, so I told them to order it. Then I had to figure out how to pay for this new bike.
I finally got a call from the bike shop last Wednesday saying my new bike was ready to pick up. Sadly, I couldn’t pick it up until Friday morning, but I was excited.
So, without further ado…everyone…I’d like to introduce you to Freddie:
Now, I’m sure you’re wondering…how did I come up with the name Freddie? He’s named after Freddie Mercury, who sang this song:
I got to take Freddie out for a spin while I was up in Boise this last weekend (stay tuned for a post about THAT) and it’s such a smooth ride. Just wonderful! Yay!!!
Do you have a time-trial bike? What kind of bike do you have?
