    No bike for about a month

    Well, I had toe surgery today, and so I am completely off the bike for probably a month.
    I am getting rid of my Allez so that I am not tempted to go out there and hop on it for a ride.

    I CANNOT wait until I can get back on two wheels (I will pickup my Cervelo about the time that I can start riding again).

    I feel your pain. Well, not toe pain, but being forced off the bike is a real pain. It ends eventually, I hope.

    yeah...I have clipless, but my doc is more concerned about hitting and damaging the repaired digit.
    I also have a hard-soled walking boot (happen to work for the manfacturer), and the doc was not real happy when I mentioned putting a cleat on the bottom so that I could ride.

    Take it easy, and let yourself heal well. I hope you recover quickly and fully.
    I reserve the right to be wrong at any time. :D

    Don't get rid of your Allez, just have a friend keep the wheels for you for a Month, or until your Dr releases you.

    Allez is already gone, but that was the plan all along. Just doing it now means that I am not tempted (although with the way my foot feels, I am not really tempted...but I would much rather be on a bike than sitting behind my desk fighting the pain pill loopies...).

    I should get the Cervelo in 3 weeks, and my new Cyclocross bike (for commuting) a week or so after that.
