Of course my early '90's Team Telekom livery pink and black Merckx is much better than just "OK." It's great. I love this bike.
That's why it's probably just as well it landed on me when I crashed last week on a triathlon training ride. Despite a high speed detour into some road debris that slammed me into the asphalt, "Emma" suffered only a small scratch on the after-market CF forks.
My broken arm (at the shoulder) is immobilized for eight weeks, but should show no signs of permanent damage. Looks like it is indoor trainers and kickboards in the pool only till spring! Wish I were 28 instead of 58 for purposes of recovery! (BTW, there is no road rash when you slam straight down. LOL!)
