|The former "fleet". Both of which had|
bad brakes. (I've heard they are now
repaired & have been donated to a
homeless shelter in Lubbock, which
makes me pretty happy.)
A folding bicycle: For greater ease of using buses, trains, airplanes, or a car2go. Although the first three will all accommodate standard bicycles, a folding one would eliminate a lot of the fuss currently associated with taking a bike on public transport. And since car2go has itty bitty smart cars with no bicycle racks, a folding bike is the only way to go multi-modal with them.
A tandem: For trips with Chad.
A cargo bike: For moving more stuff around than will fit in my panniers. Or for moving small people, since most modern cargo bikes include a child seat and seat belts.
A racing bike: Because my road bike just isn't the thing for triathlons.
A trailer: I probably wouldn't need one of these if I had a cargo bike. But it serves the same purpose, minus the child-carrying thing. Unless I get a child-carrying trailer, but that's not really the kind of trailer I'm talking about.
And my husband also has some dream bikes in mind, but you'd have to ask him what they are. Also, if I'm going to have this many bikes someday, I'll need a regular-sized garage just to have a place to park them all.
So, what's your dream transportation? It doesn't have to be cycling-related; I'm totally cool with you dreaming about cars! What do you like? (Although if you want to share your dream bike, that would be brilliant.)
