Bicycles of Phoenix

It has been an amazing week of blessings.  With the clothe diapers, we can cross off two things from our Current Needs list!  Let me tell you about Esra's new bike.

The past few months, I have been searching for a bike trailer upgrade, since Estelle is now riding a two-wheeled bike (without training wheels). So, I needed to get creative on how to go from a two-child Burley trailer to a one-seat bike-like trailer. It needed to have a recumbent bike feel to it.  A high, supportive back with a five point harness.  In my searching, I spotted the Wee-Hoo Bike Trailer somewhere online. 

I inquired around town with the bike shops to see if any were available in a showroom.  No one had one in-stock or they stopped carrying it because it was too specialized.

Thankfully, we found Bicycles of Phoenix, which just opened near our home.  We told Andy, the owner, about our needs.  He was smitten by Esra's radiant smile and he made the order for us.  Andy said it was all about karma.  It wasn't but a few days later, that we got the call from Andy that the bike had arrived. After our test ride, Esra spent the rest of the week singing and cheering with joy, so excited for her new bike.  

Bicycles of Phoenix does not specialize in adaptive equipment but they do have excellent customer service.  The showroom is brimming with some gorgeous beach cruisers.  And Estelle has her eye on the Puddin' 16, too big for her still but it doesn't stop her from trying.  She takes a ride on it every time we come in.  Plus, there is a great vibe in the shop.  

So, folks, give Andy a call or a visit.  602-404-2453.  4848 E Cactus Blvd. #120 Scottsdale, AZ.  Buy some new bling for your bike, get a tune-up, or buy one of those gel-seats you have always wanted.  Buy something big or something small and tell them that Esra sent you!
