    Yes, that's it. The frame is kind of not in great shape, DH clear coated it last week. Lots of dings and I'm not so great at keeping it clean. Though, it looks new-ish and it's been maintained well....

    I am leaning toward selling it. I don't need 3 road bikes. I won't get much, but at this point who cares? I'd rather save up for that mixte/town bike for when we move off of the hill.
    No rush,...

    We told our kids their work was school, too, but, we also made them get small part time jobs. Believe me, in our affluent area, they were outliers. It paid off for both of them. Very few kids today...

    Catrin, I can't think of any egregious changes I've made in my diet. I hardly eat dairy, just plain Greek yogurt and a little cheese and very high quality whole wheat or spelt breads, in small...

    Just got back from my fitting, about 45 minutes ago. I was there for over 2 hours. Good, but exhausting. They were surprised I rode there :eek:. It's 3.5 miles, and I had to be in my bike clothes,...

    I've been thinking about this, too. Late last winter/early spring, I went back to the Mediterranean type diet, almost vegetarian, and gave up any return to Paleo. It does not work for me. That, and...

    Oak, I can't really correlate the onset of allergies with riding or other outside stuff. It just makes it worse! It always starts with me waking up feeling like I've just been run over. I have a long...

    Why is it, that about once a week, my allergies act up, and I generally feel crappy? Did the nasal rinse (almost everyday), taking Nasacort, and took a Claritin. My eyes feel like sandpaper. Went for...

    My pannier was reasonably priced and I've had it for years (since I had the Coda), but the Arkel was pricey. I don't mind spending money on this stuff, but kind of not when it's for something I don't...

    I'll know more Thursday, but the turn around time is about 2-3 wks if it's not custom painted.
    Yeah, they get paid well.

    The original choice was 850.00 extra. We were willing to go for 400.00 extra, but in the end, decided not to.

    After a sleepless night, I decided on the one that has a similar look, that doesn't cost extra. Has a red fade to purple stripe, red lettering on a black frame. Almost got a totally black one.

    I commuted home at 7:20 last night, my latest ever. For some reason, there seemed to be more traffic than if I left at 6:15. But, aside from being a lot more cautious, it was a really nice ride, with...

    Just got an email that the paint I chose is extra. Back to the drawing board. Definitely don't want white. I am a dirt magnet. Will settle this much later tonight.
