Welcome to the Team! Procurement Edition
Monika brought her wrecking crew from Switzerland to tour the US for 6 weeks. Naturally, as they are sensible and European, they needed bikes for the trip. When it came time to go home, we bought all 5. Even though they paid new bikes store money, they still paid less than they would have renting.
Nicest darn people you could hope to meet. Sterling folks, through and through. And I'll swear it, they saw more western natural splendor in 6 weeks than most folks that have lived here their whole lives.
We bought everything they had. 5 helmets, 2 tubes, a bottle of chain lube and 5 bikes.
