Can you feel it? There is a change in the weather and all around town. Fall is here and the students have come back. I haven’t updated in a little while because I’ve been busy commanding my minions to battle!

Actually we’ve been trying to keep up with the busy flow of students and their parents who want to find the perfect bike, or who want to make their bike more perfect. You should hear the hub-bub around the shop, bikes coming in and leaving with fenders, racks, new light sets, the whole works. I have to find new places to sit because my baskets keep getting purchased.

Also, big news! The store is getting a new look. In a few days we will be dramatically changing the way B & L looks inside the shop. Keep your eyes out; we’re very excited for the change. I’ll even post before and after pictures in a few days.

In the mean time, take a look at a few of my adventures in the past few weeks.

Some Explaination

I think I need to explain—my minion, the one I posted that dorky picture of in my last post, she caught me in the boss lady's basket for Burning Man and posted it to the blog. Not sure how she got my password and it’s quite possibly the worst picture of me, but I guess I can let it go. I did post that awful picture of her and she gives me lots of greenies.

In answer to why I was hanging out in the boss lady's Burning Man bike basket….I was hoping to stow away so she could take me with her. Don’t get me wrong, the heat in the day and the dust, not a fan. Can you imagine how much work for the minions to get me clean after that? No thank you! But the nights? I think I can get behind the nights.  The lights, the sounds, so many people to admire my magnificence…this is an event made for me.  And so many wonderfully decorated bikes with beads and lights and unicorns, there are unicorns in the desert! I am so there if there are unicorns that light up.

The boss lady has been going for the last five years and has a blast every time. You can see some of the cool things she has on her bike in that bad picture of me - the flowers, wild yarns and lights should be very easy to spot.  You can take a look at all the other fun things we have for your Burning Man steed here in the shop.The iridescent streamers, neon lights and spoke beads are hard to miss.  Fair warning though, you will have to supply your own unicorn.
