Another bike I don’t own

June 20, 2007

There is a rule in our house, one that I think needs overturning, that no one is allowed to own more than three bikes. Hence when the triplet was bought is is “owned” by the whole family as my bike quota is used up.

Today I took delivery of a Yellow Brompton with three speed hub gear, as between the Brompton and the Bike shop they could not order a two speed bike, hub “SON” dynamo. This is a practical bike to use when I have to get a train.

Luckily for me this is via the Bike 2 Work scheme so it does not belong to me, it belongs to Sun, hence I remain below the three bike limit. No need to renegotiate the “rule” yet.

  1. Ah, very sneaky. But what happens this time next year?
    OOI, did this come from Halfords? I’m thinking about buying a Scott hybrid, but Halfords don’t list them on their website…

  2. I have a plan for next year, which I can’t discloses as it would weaken my negotiating position
    It came sort of via Halfords but from another bike shop, one I no longer rate highly, that could work with the Halfords Scheme.
