Free Spirit


Check out the bike I just got from the Thrift Store. A three-speed "Free Spirit" with a bike license that expired in 1985. The price tag: $17.99. Jared talked them down to $9.99, of course. Considering it's age, it's in great shape. What a deal! I bought an old beat up one-speed at a garage sale for $5 last year but I ended up selling it for $20 a few weeks later. (You know, me and the whole I-can't-pass-up-a-chance-to-make-a-quick-profit bit.) But now I have a replacement! You can bet I'm going to be taking this bad boy off some pretty sweet jumps this summer. :)

I love the bike. You are such a deal shopper. Maybe I need to send you out with a list of things I need. Jarren just bought me a bike. Maybe we could build some pretty sweet jumps together.
