One of the worst things about my addiction to food blogs is that when I see something that looks delicious on one of them, I MUST make it. The problem is that I try to make it too fast to fulfill my craving and end up messing it up and today my waffle came out in chunks. The next two waffles came out a lot better.
I did nail my main waffle requirement…they MUST be crispy. I like my cereal soggy but if a waffle is soggy I go as far as to not even smile while I am eating it.
I don’t know why I feel the need to pose with whatever product I am reviewing. I think this habit stemmed from watching, ‘The Price Is Right’ with my mother every morning at 9 a.m. as she walked on the treadmill for the first 6 years of my life. I am extremely good at guessing the price of any item from the late 1980s early 1990s.
A few people have asked for me to do a review on my spin bike that I got in December. Of course you can go out and spend thousands of dollars on a spin bike and have zero issues and absolutely love it but it is a little more difficult when you are on a teacher’s salary and already overspent your money that year on Subway and race registrations. So since our budget for it was below $300, Billy really did his research on the best bike for that price. Knowing Billy he probably read about 1,000 user reviews and researched every bike out there….one more reason I love him.
-It is incredibly sturdy…I hate it when a bike wobbles around and the handlebars move back and forth or the seat jiggles. You don’t have to worry about any of those things with this bike. This is the biggest plus for me.
-The bike is very quiet and smooth so that I can bike really early or really late without my neighbors hating me.
-It was SUPER easy to put together, at least it looked like it was as I watched Billy put it together;)
-The resistance is awesome! I don’t like when a bike tension changes a huge amount when you barely even turn the dial a little bit and I also don’t like to have to spin the resistance a full turn before I feel any difference in the tension. This bike has just the right combination for increasing the tension with about a fourth of a turn, it has a huge range of different tensions that you can get to very smoothly.
-Really easy to move around….something about Billy not wanting it to be in the middle of our family room at all times.
-The Push Stop button is kind of awkward where it is place and I think we are going to try to take it off.
-There is no water bottle holder. Yes, that shouldn’t bug me and I should just go buy one and add it on but I am lazy and it bugs me.
-The bike did not come with pedals for cycling shoes so I had to put my road bike pedals on. Once again, I am sure if you have a bigger budget for a bike you can get one with all of these side things buts for how much we paid we feel like we got an incredible deal.
-I wish the handlebars had a place to set things like your phone or iPod. I put a towel over the top of it so I can put my iPad and phone on it but don’t tell Billy but they sometimes fall through the handlebars.
