We're going to need a bigger stable...

Because the Husband finally got himself some wheels! A Terra Trike tadpole recumbent.

He loves it. And it's quite speedy! Here he is zooming:

You can read up on that here:

Since then we've gone on several rides together. I'm trying out my various bikes to see which are best with his. So far, while he builds up stamina, the Pashley seems to be the best. We'll see how long that lasts!

In other news, the Fuji now has tires:

But is going to need a new chain. And there is ANOTHER mixte in the house!

I'll take some better pictures of it soon, but since it's just a frame I'm going to give it all new components, and a new paint job. Obviously it will need a fork as well. Once I have that, I'm going to have it stripped and powder coated. I'm not sure of the color scheme though. What do you guys think?


  1. Three cheers for your husband joining you for bike dates! And you can never have too many mixtes in the house. LOoking forward to reading about your new one!

  2. Awww...don't repaint that. It's shabby-chic.

  3. Amy - Lol, unfortunately if I don't it will become rusted and falling apart chic. There are some places on the underside of the frame where it looks like someone started trying to remove the paint by hand with sandpaper. :/ But I may go with a similar green.

  4. Red. It needs to be dark red with black lugs. Then you can call it Rose. :)

  5. I don't think there's a shade of green that I don't like. The Fuji is coming along ... I can't wait to see the finished product. Those black lugs on the Jeunet are great as well. A cranberry color would look nice too.

  6. I'm with Amy; Awww...don't repaint that
