My Drupal bike

Through the wonderful Neil Drumm, Chapter Three learned that I was in the market for a bicycle. Chapter Three — the company of Drupal overlords Matt Cheney, Josh Koenig and Zack Rosen — has a fun side project called Mission Bicycles that uses Drupal to sell customizable fixed gear and single speed bikes in San Francisco.

Of course, I was interested in riding around on one of their customized bicycles. Especially one that featured a white seat, white rims, and a particularly familiar shade of blue (#027AC6) for the frame. On top of that, I was promised that, if I wasn't already, I would be the coolest kid on my block. They'd toss in a free Drupal bike jersey to help guarantee the promised result.

I ordered one instantly, and a couple of weeks later, a bike showed up at my front door. After assembling the bike, the tubes still filled with San Francisco air, I'm now ready to ride the European lands in true California style.

The box included wrenches, power bars, a chocolate cookie, instructions, a cap and a Drupal jersey.

Mission Bikes come with an Oompa-Loompa that will assemble your bike.

The Oompa-Loompa assembled the front wheel and steering column, and is now working to remove the protective cover from the bike.

Real men ride bulletproof bikes (with no brakes).

Flipping the back wheel allows me to switch between fixed gear and single speed. Crazy hot!
