    Woo woo . . . The police recovered our bicycles

    Of course, before they recovered, we went out and bought new bikes.. I will now have a carbon race bike and a carbon endurance bike. I guess I will find out the difference. My new bike was around $2100 so I figure that's okay seeing is if I hadn't canceled the claim I would have had 2500 out of pocket for the deductible. I'd resigned myself to accepting the deductible. So instead of a deductible I have a new bike. LOL. We can't return the bikes. We had some custom things done.

    We plan on selling my SO's recovered bike. He likes the one he bought now much better.

    I guess I will have thee bikes now. A Schwinn, a Trek, and a Speciaized.

    The police won't release them until Friday because they need them for evidence. We will be out of town for a while so the police said they would keep them until we got back. I won't know the full story until we get back. But I can't wait to bring my Ruby home! And I will have a great story to tell!

    When I thought my Ruby was gone, I bought a Trek Domane 4.5. It really is a too good a deal to return. It was nearly $500 off because it is 2012 and a size 44. I think if they hadn't sold it by now, they weren't going to sell it. It's suppose to be an endurance bike. My current Ruby is speed bike. I also received $40 in store credit because it there was some sort of promotion. My SO also bought a custom e-assist bike. Because of the amount we spent, the LBS did give us really good deals.

    I don't know if the difference between a speed and race bike makes any difference to me. LOL. If not, I can always sell one, but right now I plan to keep them both. I will have to split my time evenly between them when I go riding. I certainly don't want the Ruby to get jealous of the Domane or vice versa. Who knows what could happen? It's going to be a pain keeping them in the house but they are never getting stolen again!

    OMG that is good news. We do get attached to our bikes.

    I can not wait to see pictures of the TREK. I love that bike, was drooling over it myself but just did not have the funds for one. I think I need to start saving now for a few years down the road. I would really love to do a custom Project One Domane.
