I've had an itch lately to ride it, so yesterday the Spouse Thingy took it to the local bike shop to get it tuned up, brakes adjusted, chain greased, everything checked out. And today he picked it up, and rode it home.
The front fork is bent.
Not just a little out of line; that sucked is bent. He says it's rideable if I push hard on the bars to keep it from swaying to one side, but I want to ride, not push. If I want to push, I'll get on the Trikke or Strider.
It's not fixable, most likely.
I can use it inside on the bike rack thingy, the one I have the Strider on now for indoor use, but that's not riding. That's watching TV while pretending to exert myself.
I'm not sure I want to buy a new bike just yet, so it'll have to do.
Still....bummed, I am...
