First, I DNFed my dang triathlon (not enough training or fluids), then last night the wife and I's bikes were stolen. I'll get over the triathlon, but now we're starting from scratch on the bikes. My bike was a crap aluminum Walmart frame, but I had upgraded EVERYTHING including an awesome hand built rear wheel featuring a 105 hub donated by a BFer out of the kindness of his heart last year. The wifes was a nice basic Trek 1.1 that I gave her as a wedding present.
Thankfully, insurance covers most of it, but minus the deductible and depreciation, we're out about 40% of the value of the two bikes plus upgrades and accessories. We're getting enough to replace the wifes bike, and I'll have the starting point for my next bike, but very little time to build it. Sadly CL is pretty empty right now. If this had to happen 2 months ago would have been a lot better time for it.
Better now than a few days before our half-ironman I guess. The good news is we get to go bike shopping!
