Been there - done that! Although she dosen't ride, I got her to pose for this picture. She was supprised at the next family reunion, as I was wearing a shirt with this this picture on it! She says she hates it but I know better!

One of two things will happen: 1) she can't stand the contraption and may never understand what you see in it, in which case you're no worse off. 2) She gets hooked and will want her own, which is the more expensive route but at least she won't be able to feel justified about griping at you.

I think my wife secretly wonders what it's like. She's seen what I'm turning that ancient JC Higgins into. She looked at it longer than she looks at most of my creations. In the end she said it was "Very pretty, very retro." I think I could get her on it.

Then, what could she say?
