I am the lucky and happy owner of 3 bikes. Each has its own purpose and I love each in its own way. Two are mixtes and one is a folder. Mixtes eliminate my standover height problem. Plus I like how they look! The folder’s versatility is great and it opens up opportunities that don’t exist with standard bikes.
Last night I was rather idly looking at bikes on CraigsList to see what’s there in the way of mixtes. I am not really looking for another bike. I was just curious, but this one caught my eye.
It’s an Electra Ticino 8-speed. After looking it up and reading some reviews, I was intrigued with it. Enough so that I emailed the owner, who lives about an hour drive from me. I wanted to try it out and see how it felt. If I liked it I think I would have made her an offer. She kindly emailed me back to let me know she sold it yesterday (it had been posted for a month).
I don’t know how I might have used this bike, and I am really not sure why I am so interested in it. It’s fine that it was sold. Look at all the time and money I just saved! Maybe someday I will get to check out one of these bikes, which will be fun.
