Yep, I sold my wonderful, never-let-me-down Trek 3900 mtb, the bike that brought me back into cycling. A nice young kid bought it tonight and rode off into the night air. Even he could see I had mixed feelings about selling it. He asked me, "Are you sure you want to do this?"
But, it was time. The bike served me very well; and the money will be put aside for another bike someday. And now there's just a bit more room in the dining room.
Thanks, Craigslist, for finding a good home for the bike. I have to admit, I do feel like I've just said goodbye to a good friend that I'll probably never see again.
