Found (again): My Bike Hercules

I’ve had this bicycle for many years now. I love it and I would quite happily never get a new one. However, for the past year it’s been buried under a variety of stuff in our shed. The reason being that the gears were broken and permanently stuck on the highest and the heaviest (needless to say it was not a graceful sight to behold when I was cycling uphill…) and it seemed to be a challenge to try to fix it. *

However, left with a few cuts and bruises my husband and a handy friend managed to restore at least two of the gears back into working order. Woop! Now I can resume riding this blue wonder around town with a smile on my face (and a deep burn in my thighs).


*I am too much of a wuss to take it to a bike shop as I think they would laugh me and my granny bike out of the shop and make me buy a mountain bike.

    No way! They wouldn’t laugh at you- cruiser bikes are all the rage these days, and you have the real deal!

  3. Schronienie: Yes, do it!!! I say the older the better!

    Billiejean: Maybe I just need to pluck up the courage and go to a shop to get Herc fixed properly. I’m just a wuss. 🙂

    The guys at Addiktion Cycles are wonderful. They won’t laugh you out of the shop. In fact, they might even teach you some simple bike maintenance if you ask nicely. 🙂
