introducing… Petunia Chanel June 16th, 2010
There she is! My new purple bike, a sweet wedding gift from my husband. (awww.) She was imported straight from China and put together by Matt himself, with some help from Velocity Bicycle Co-op in Alexandria, VA and Rolling Cycles on 14th Street. In case you forget where she is from, there is a big stamp on the frame “made in china, country of mao zedong.” Crazy commie bike! I named her Petunia Chanel because, well, I thought Petunia was fitting for the bright purple frame, and middle name Chanel is a tribute to the similarly named bike I rode while we were in Paris, courtesy of whoever names the wheels at Bike About Tours, Paris. Isn’t she pretty???!!!!
