This is part of our 100 Things in 2015 challenge. Here’s the full list.
It was way back in 2013 when the kids got their new bikes, and we grownups had been limping along on hand-me-downs and borrowed bikes ever since. It was high time we got our own.
We (well, I) did a ton of research, and turned up this little gem of a company: Brilliant. They make a great bike, without requiring that you become a certified bike repairperson to decide which one to get. Seriously, try out their ordering process: it’s four steps, and the hardest thing to choose is the color.
We pulled the trigger, and waited with baited breath for our boxes to arrive. It’s a big box:
And some assembly is required.
They’re beautiful. And we love them.
If you’re looking for a bike, think about Brilliant. There’s a bit of work involved, but the price is reasonable, and you’ll have a much more personal relationship with your conveyance than if you bought it from Costco.
