Boyfriend is out of town next weekend, and I will get a bike, by gum. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just good enough. Either a very light hybrid or a road bike.
The money is worth it.
It doesn’t matter if boyfriend won’t ride with me, I know other people to ride with.
If the seat isn’t comfortable, I’ll get a different seat.
If the handlebars aren’t comfortable, I’ll get padding.
If I don’t like the color … I’ll eventually get it painted.
All things can be fixed except fit and ride.
