Moving back to Strathmore. Life directs it. Makes more sense.
Back to riding bike every single day (new commute will only be about 2 miles), and more of my fleat will be used. Back to good time cruising the bike paths with the family. Selling the car. Just makes sense.
New house should be ready in about a month. Old house will be rented out. Stepping up into a bit of luxury after some down home farm-like fun. Some aspects will be missed, some not.
Now, picking out flooring, fixtures, lighting, colors and stonework. Good times.
Bikes should be back into far greater usage in a month or so. Already some changes to make them more practical for the new location. Fixie, is getting flat bars, loosing the brakes, hand made rack, and getting all messenger style. Should be good. Basket bike will get regular duty, as will the Rockabilly Boogie on those days when I just want to look good. S/S MTB is now optional as a commuter. LHT will still get the love. I'm thinking a front rack and maybe a basket? I need to finish re-building the Xtra. It will see significantly more usage, and it's practicality will be maxed.
One other bike related benefit, very large attached garage and large unfinished basement make excellent bike storage/wrenching quarters.
