Many years ago I worked for a company that owned a Bike Shop. This was back when you could buy a Huffy at Kmart or a Schwinn at a local bike shop. Of course, I was a bike snob because of working there. We had one mechanic that was amazing. Dennis rarely spoke to anyone but he could put a bike together or fix a bike in no time at all. One day I asked him if he would teach me how to put a bike together. Amazingly enough, he agreed to teach me. Now normally it would take a couple of hours for him to put one together. It took me all day! You would not believe how many parts there are to a bicycle! Believe me, when you first open that box there are parts everywhere! Very little comes put together. Dennis was great and so patient. He didn’t even swear once though I think his eyeballs could have fallen out of his sockets from all the eye rolls he did! Of course, I could never do it now but it was fun to do, once, back then.
Bike Ride is one of those fun stamp sets that you can do a lot with. The set has 24 different Photopolymer stamps which include the bike, wheels, flowers, a basket, books, apples and even a dog. It is a two step stamp set which means it take two or more stamps to make an image. It is super easy to line up because they stamp are Photopolymer which means you can see through them. It is a lot easier to put this bike together than a real one! Plus, to top it all off, this stamp set has matching Framelits called Build A Bike which include 15 dies. If you buy them in a Bundle you can save 10%. That is a lot of bang for your buck!
