The advice that Vin..er..RacerEx gave me made perfect sense, and I'll probably rue the day that I ignored it. I was going to buy a Team Issue Fuji, on Racer's expert advice, but then I saw one at PBK, and I just lost my will. My snobbery won out. I can't buy a bike from PBK. Test riding an R3 didn't help either. I'm usually oblivious to frame differences, but this sh*t really felt nice.
So, I can get an R3-SL frameset for about $300 more than the R3 frameset. Worth it? Is it crazy to race this frame if I don't have PCaddywompas money?
