AUGH!

There is a medium-sized Civia Twin City Step-Through on the floor at a bike shop in Richmond, VA and I don't have a spare five hours to get down there and back before June 2nd. Please oh please oh please don't get sold before I get a chance to test you.

Please.

    1. Yes, I have three. If I get a new commuter/town bike, I will sell the hybrid. I'm trying not to be a super collector.

  4. Fingers crossed!

    Jez must not know that a woman can never have too many bikes. :)

  5. You have a worldwide blogging audience waiting anxiously to hear the results of your test ride! Let the shop know that, perhaps they would be willing the schedule a test ride on June 2.

  7. Hey Mel,

    I follow your blog and thought I should chime in on the Twin City's. (It's biased as I work for the parent company) they are wonderful.

    if your shop sells that one we should have more they can special order!! are you wanting the single speed or geared??

    1. Hey there! The impression the shop gave me was that Civia might run out since the 2013s will be rolling in before too much longer. I think he was trying to pressure me into purchasing the bike in a panic. I'm not particularly thrilled with that tactic, but seeing as how it's the most local shop that carries Civias, I'll suck it up and deal with the questionable attitude.

      I'm happy to see another opinion on the wonderfulness of the Twin City, even a biased one. :) I haven't read anything negative about this model.

      Oh, and I want the geared version. Gotta have gears for the rolling hills around here. :)
