Sold my carbon bike

I listed my 2001 Trek 5500 on a whim on Craigslist here 2 days ago. It was too big for me, but I loved riding it (probably due to it being such a high end bike) so I listed it for $2K thinking no one would ever bite and I'd keep it for the occasional ride. Well...some guy called me, came and paid me $1850 cash for it about 2 hours ago. I was shocked....so now what do I buy? I have a new Fuji newest 1.0....maybe just keep the cash in case I see something I have to have?

Just because you have the cash in hand now doesn't mean you have to buy anything, but then I'm sure you already knew that.

This is the kind of money that finds itself locked in a lockbox inside of the safe in the garage.

If you haven't you might consider having a professional fit done on the Fuji. I was amazed at the difference it made for me.

Yup...the money is already safely out of my hands. I've been thinking of a fit...problem is...none of the shops around here do a complete fit...they do seat, bars and pedals. Might not be a bad idea to start there.

I need some new shoes also....was looking at the Specialized Sport Touring
