A Second Life for an Old Friend

Here's an old friend of ours, owned by the Miss Kate Ball, the Hyda Bike. This Hyda Bike had an identical twin owned by Bean. It was very cute to see these two ladies wheeling down the street on matching bikes. For some reason the rack was never used to pick up any thirty packs? Odd. Anyways...the Hyda Bike is pretty cool because it is vintage Italian. Made by Cinza, it has a three speed derailleur setup, has generator lights, and of course can fold into a nice compact size. Kate updated it a bit with new tires, re-tensioned spokes, and new cables.

Here is the happy new owner of the Hyda Bike, Remy. Remy purchased this beauty yesterday and you can tell by the smile on his face that he can't wait to take it out for a ride. Its always nice to see a rider excited about their new bike. The excitement and thrill you feel when you first take a new bike out for a ride cannot be described in words, you have to experience it to understand.
