My Stupid Bike

It's a Big Dummy. I love the hell out of it. I was intimidated the first time it rolled into our garage but once I got on and started to roll around town I realized how limiting a small standard rack really is.

Most recently I learned this when I went for my last party supply run. I went for a watermelon and came back with chips, pretzels, watermelon, cantaloupe, hamburger patties, 24 pack of bottled water, various grocery items that looked like a good idea and a folding chair with a canopy. Try strapping all that to a standard rack on a hot summer day.

This is the grocery go getter.

The party supplier.

This is my Big Dummy.
