*Electra and I - my super exciting news*

If you know me personally you will know that I have been saving and searching for a bike for sometime now. I did have my heart set on a metallic blue American Navy inspired bike which I absolutely adored. However due to lack of funds at the time I actually missed out on that beautiful bike and have been searching ever since. The search has now been called off as I have found a new bike that is to my retro taste (however my heart will always belong to the American Navy bike).

Firstly, if you have read my previous posts you will know that my blog was previously under the title of "The Adventures of comic book girl", so if you haven't already guessed I am a huge comic book fan. Yes, really I am. So when I came across a brand that was called Electra (although spelt slightly different) I had to have one of their bikes.

So here she is.... my gorgeous new bike

I haven't been able to take her for a ride yet as I am still finding it really painful just walking, however I do plan to take her out at the weekend no matter how painful it is.

If you are wondering where I got my lovely bike from, I purchased it at Chain Reaction Cycles. The service I received was amazing. However I would like to point out that I was lucky enough to have my partner put my bike together for me, unless you have built one before I would maybe suggest taking it to a bike shop and have them put it together.

I am so excited about taking her out for a ride at the weekend and my first trip will be going to purchase a helmet, FUN!

Have a terrific day,

Roo xoxo
