At long last, I got the call that our Bak was ready!

We all piled in to the car and headed for Clever Cycles. The shop was busy, so we spent a few minutes checking out stylish helmets for my wife, Sara, before we were helped.

"I'm here to pick up my Bak!" My grin must have been ear to ear.

After paying for it and making sure that serial numbers matched between the bike and the paperwork, Dean led us outside where our Bak awaited. He went over some of the differences between this and the previous version — things like the seat post angle, the rack construction, etc.

Sara joked that there was no need for the overview, since I'd done nothing but scour the web for Bakfiets blogs, sites, FAQs, and photos for the last two weeks.

After a brief preflight inspection and a spin around the block, it was time to get serious. I had to ride home. I kissed the wife and baby goodbye, and headed down the road.
