Bike Girl Goes Shopping Pt 1

Bike Girl happens to be in the market for a bicycle. Our fearless protagonist, while she has not blogged about riding in awhile, has been riding as much as ever on the three trusty steeds in her bicycle stable. However, she has a nagging desire to add to her herd.

As Bike Girl's loyal fans remember, adding to one's bicycle fleet is a mathematical inevitability, because of the N+1 equation.

The bicycle Bike Girl seeks is very specific. It is a road bike with a triple chain ring in the front and braze-on's for touring. It also fits her perfectly.

Finding this bicycle has been quite a trial. Bike Girl has had to dust off her noir-film-esque detective skills.

In order to get back into the blogging groove, Bike Girl will chronicle the arduous process here.

Ah, yes, the N+1 equation. Tricky. It's the reason I'm on the hunt from bike #3. :) Sorry, I don't have advice for the kind of bike you're looking for. Good luck!
