Love at First Sight

Okay ... check this baby out:

I first saw this bicycle at one of our local REI stores, and after reading reviews (here and here), I'm pretty much totally and completely head over heals for Electra's Amsterdam Classic. The gee whiz features on this bicycle include:
  • Nexus internal 3-speed hub
  • Coaster brake (keep things simple)
  • Aluminum frame
  • Fully-enclosed metal chaincover
  • Generator LED front and rear lights
  • Full fenders (with mud flap up front)
  • Rear rack
  • Coat/skirt guard over the rear wheel

Now I need to break the news to my wife that there's going to be another addition to our family -- the Amsterdam Classic.

Wow! An amazing tribute to old-school simplicity and style! I'm still riding my 40-pound Huffy 18-speed mountain bike from Toys R' Us that I got when I was 12 years old. Okay, so maybe I'm not actually riding it--it's hanging upside-down from my garage ceiling.
