What to name the new one in the stable?
Our new bike will be Enno Orange. I don't know what Enno means, but orange is Maiya's favorite color and how many orange bikes do we see riding around? The Bike Friday Family Traveler Tandem is cool. Let us enumerate the ways it is cool: it adjusts so that the kids can ride on back and then you can quickly adjust again and adults can ride on back; it breaks apart and fits into two hardcase, rolling regular luggage-size cases; it has smaller tires; and it is orange.
It does not yet have a name, but the girls are thinking. It will be hear in about 3-4 weeks and we'll definitely pop up some pictures. If this bike works out, then our red, much-loved Santana tandem will go up for sale so we can add a second Bike Friday tandem--in purple, of course--MeiLin's favorite color.
In the meantime, enjoy a picture of the Santana while it is still here!
