Serious bike covetousness

Hello, covetousness.

You know I <3 my bicycle, right? It's utilitarian. It takes me places, it doesn't look like the kind of bike you should steal, it's not super heavy. It's a perfectly fine bike, and I am happy with it. But that doesn't mean that a girl can't do a little window shopping, right? Lately I have been drooling in the (figurative) windows of Sweetpea Bicycles.

I dream of someday cruising around on a cute little A-line, even though I’m sad that orange isn’t one of the colors it’s offered in. But in my imagination, it’s orange, which is really all I need, since that’s the only place I’m ever going to have one.

And now have more covetousness, because they’ve got bags. I may never have an A-Line of my own, but I could totally have a quick-trip messenger bag. I’d put my imaginary Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook in it, cruise down to the coffee shop, and dream up all kinds of ridiculous baked goods.

A girl can dream, right?
