Been thinking I need to stop screwing around with cheap, basically broken crap, in general, and start replacing it with "something nice".

That being said, I've been vaguely looking out for a Giant hybrid bicycle - I used to own a half decent one, and it was a great machine - with thoughts of making it electric. My classified searching came up with a "barely used" one that came factory electric, with dead batteries, that was about the kind of price I figured I'd have to pay for a non-electric Giant hybrid. A few emails and a drive later, I brought her home:

I'll see if I can revive the batteries this weekend. And, if not, well, it was still worth the price, even if I have to buy new cells for it.
