Well the performance carbon bike was just too much for me to worry about so I was going to look at a nice steel bike.
At a little DFW bikeforums gathering someone mentioned richardson bike mart and their vast selection and used bikes. So my wife took me down and got me an early Birthday present (new years eve)
I was looking at some old schwin worlds and they had a paramount but it was too large
However what did they have that was just my size!
On a nice set of wheels
Full dura ace (8 speed) on a titanium frame
I tried a few other bikes and I just couldn't resist the calling so there it is on my fireplace with my fujis old seat so I can go out for a ride after I swap over my Dinottes.
