Hola, mi amor.

Getting the ♥Frenchie back from a tune-up session felt awesome. Like my mood improved 2349x automatically, honestly it had been not the best week at work -ok it was really shitty- and about a week ago I was more than happy to pick her up from the finest bicycle establishment in the northeast of the city, North Beach's own Citizen Chain.
Here are some pictures, as if I haven't posted plenty of shots, it has been really cool to know the shop from when it used to be across the street not that long ago. Maybe 2+ years ago [link]? I don't precisely know, but the shop is certainly always looking good!
Here is a mini photo journal. Enjoy!

So, my new S Brooks saddle - the B66 S in honey is currently shipping. Since I have a tremendous case of separation anxiety with my bicyclette, well and basket anxiety since my road beauty has not such assets, I will have to roam with this temporary one and review it along the way.
Actually, it ain't bad for something that is 30$, so if you need something inexpensive and now - the chain's got it.
To be honest, I have now riding leather on both of my bikes for 5+years, and for as much as I ride, synthetics just don't cut it. My little rear is a little spoiled I suppose, so has been a great investment (when I first bought my Pro S Brooks) that I have never regretted. Really.
So anyway, so far I have already done butter and my daily adventures on this saddle, so it is OK for the next couple of weeks.
oh. hai.

If you ever need a 3course unexpensive homie Italian meal, Capp's corner will do ya good. Also for a beer and some sports at their bar in the middle of the day. Eeeh - it's just a little something.
