Love at first bike

Ever since I saw that Liberty of London Limited Edition bike at the Target website, I fell in love. I forget how much the first editions were but I reckon they were about $200 or so. But it was pretty! I imagined myself riding the lovely floral cruiser around the neighborhood, wearing lovely floral dresses. But that was just a dream. I still have a mountain bike gathering dust in our living room. If only Liberty of London made floral mountain bikes! Besides, next thing I knew, they sold out! I couldn't even find them in the stores! Bah!

Anyway, as I was surfing through Target's website, I realized they came out with a second edition of those lovely bikes. I was kind of hoping that the price will also go down but it didn't. I guess I was just not meant to have that bike. I mean, I still have a mountain bike that I rarely use so why should I get another one just because it's pretty? Exactly. Because it's pretty. :)

I found a really cheaper alternative though. I was really excited to see that Huffy made His and Hers Deluxe cruiser bikes for only $100 each! They're not really floral but I have to say, I like the neutral color! And they both come with baskets and rear racks too! *insert heavenly sounds here, harps, angels and all!* Now, if I can only get the Mister to agree to get these matching bikes...

P.S. The lovely Huffy Deluxe Cruisers can be purchased at Walmart at the low low price of $119. You will also get a $20 gift card and free home delivery too! If Walmart is not an option, the Huffy Deluxe Cruisers are also available in Kmart for $140 + $45 shipping.

I can see why you'd fall for the floral bike. So cute. But the Huffy ones are awesome and way cheaper...all you have to do is add yourself in a floral frock! :)-Carrie

I love those 2 bikes! Are those at Target, too?

Alice said...

Woah. I love your taste; both bikes are so cool O_O

The first one's really funky with the super cute print, and the second's more sophisticated and stylish.

OH how pretty! I got my bike at Target, it is a cruiser too. Only, it is just blue and it does not have the pretty flowers on it. :P

The Royal Oak Garage Sale takes place in the huge parking garage in the city. Different venders are set up on each level, all hodge-podge and the sell everything from clothes to comic books. There were not too many clothes venders last year, but there are always a few that sell cute stuff. Does it sound like fun? it is right downtown, should be fun :)

I've had a maddening craving for bike recently! If ever you can crave a bike, which isn't at all edible. That Huffy one would be just perfect.:)But I'm on the same page as you, I don't believe I could talk to boy on getting one for himself so we could take a nice long bike ride to the beach.
