My Little Red Bike

I mentioned that I want a bike! And here it is! The first "new" bike that I've ever owned (I don't count the ugly thing I bought in the 1970s). This one is Red! Or, as the bike maker calls it, Deep Fuschia!

It's just the right height that I can sit astraddle with both feet planted firmly on the ground. In order to get the appropriate reach for my feet (so the leg is nearly extended at the farthest point of the pedal), the stirrups are placed slightly forward of the seat. It's difficult to explain. But it works.

The model is Trek's Pure Low Step. Click here to see it in Haze Blue.
