Building Poli Chapter Five: Is This Love At First Sight?
She doesn't look too shabby, does she?
Slim yet sturdy, What else can you want from a bike? The lady in red, black and yellow is ready to roll. Steel frame and sexy looks from top to bottom, back to front. Scratches on the different parts are just considered beauty marks adding to her distinguished personality.
Well-used wheels and a scratched crankset may not win her the bikini part of the beauty contest, but I'm confident she will take home the prize through pure brilliance at the Q & A portion. "How will you contribute to world peace?" the panel of judges will ask her.
"Ride me," she will answer, revealing that black chainstay with a flirtatious look.
And then, when that certain someone does take her for a ride, his evil plans will vanish from his thoughts, like a goldfish resetting his memory.
Zen moments will pour over me like torrential rain on my two-wheel trips on this bike. Either that, or the lack of a rear suspension will make me want to chuck her in the river.
