I've been looking for one for a while -- just an inexpensive 'beach cruiser' type w/hand brakes and about 5 gear speeds. We saw a mens' model at Walmart, but I wanted the one without the center bar (I don't high jump so well anymore!). Last night, on a whim, DH and I stopped at the store and saw a matching set, so this morning, we got them. I even got a basket! I'm so psyched! I haven't had a bike since before my son was still in training wheels. My son is a pre-teen now, but is not very coordinated, and will NOT ride a bike (can not, will not...WON'T). I kept saying I would get a bike when he got out of training wheels, but since it didn't happen, I didn't. DH says we can go for a ride this evening. I took my bike down the street and back when we were setting the seat height. Even with the temperature being in the upper 80s, I could feel the wind on my face. I didn't realize how much I'd missed it!
