Got my third bike recently. Bike, as in bicycle.
My first was a Pee-Wee Herman-looking bike when I was, maybe, 10. The second was something I bought at Ft. Belvoir to help me get around post. This one's the third. And, it's another Pee-Wee Herman-looking bike.
When I was younger, I never had one of those multi-speed bikes. So, I never got the whole 10-speed (the big deal when I was young) thing. Or the brakes on the handles. Had I had one of those bikes, I'd have got used to it early on. And, when I got the bike at Ft. Belvoir, I had to get used to the multi-speed thing, as well as the handle bar brakes.
Wife got a bike recently. She got it as a prize at work for ... showing up or something. Anyway, I decided to get a bicycle, too, so we could go riding together. So, I did. And I decided to get an old-fashioned type.
Today, I pumped up the tires and adjusted the seat and we rode for a bit.
That seat ain't gonna work. I'm thinking I need one a little wider. And shaped a little different. I'm thinking I might take a seat off a riding lawn mower. Or get a U-shaped toilet seat. Because the current seat is ... uncomfortable. And there are some areas where I demand comfort.
We'll see if this works out, or if I was nuts to buy it. So to speak.
