1/4 Bridestones. The paint job is very original and quite lovely. It is a darker blue with some sparkle.
The Bike Shop at Las Colinas for a overhaul/tune-up. The guys at the shop told me it would be $49.99, minus 25% due to the sale they are running right now, which I thought wasn't a bad price and so I dropped it off. The guy called me a few hours later and assured me that there is nothing wrong with the bike and that the bike is in excellent condition. He did say that he adjusted the gears a bit and charged me $16 and change (including taxes). I appreciated the quick turnaround, honesty and the savings. Thanks, guys!
So, that's the story in a nutshell. I will put the bike to test over the next couple of days, hopefully ride to work, if I can.
I would like to use this bike as a alternative commuter and for running errands. Let's see what the future holds :)
I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions on what I should watch out for, which parts you would change if it were up to you, etc.
