I have a recumbent tricycle!

I bought it today off craigslist! I like it. It has a very interesting way of steering and handles really well, though I have to have it adjusted for me as it is set up for a person 10" taller! It's funny, I had been idly thinking about how it wouldn't match my helmet (blue bike, black helmet with red and yellow flames) but then I asked my dad to find my helmet which was in his garage, and he couldn't find it so he gave me a nice blue helmet he wasn't using.

That looks like a *tricycle* to me.

I did use "bike" as a generic term in the cut text, didn't I? Edited that!

You know, I *do* have a blue helmet that would fit you. I found it during the move. You should take it the next time we get together.

I should get on CL or Freemarket and see if there's some sort of bike trailer/kid carrier dealiemabobber thingie. That would be awesome for those trips around the neighborhood, to the park or library or movie theater, etc.

The real issue is, I really like my goofy black helmet with red and yellow flames, though I know it looks silly. But I knew it would look EXTRA silly with a blue bike as opposed to a red or black one. So its fate that it is lost in the garage and I ended up with a blue one.

Yes it has cargo space behind the seat, though I will need some bungees and stuff to make sure anything I want to carry is properly fastened there!

Bring it by, sweets. I have all kinds of adjustment tools.

I need to shorten the chain and move the pedals (that's how this trike adjusts for different sized people) as well as get more air in the tires and figure out how the shifters work.

I noticed you tried to call me tonight, I was serving toast at the time at HOT at Convergence! Very busy with that this weekend. Must sleeeeep soon!
