Well, my wife has taken a beating on BF. See the infamous "Never say this to your wife" post. But today we were down at the charity run thrift store looking for more junk we don't need and I know why I still am in love with her.
Spotted an old Trek 420 outside and asked the clerk for a tape measure. Wife says what do you want that for? I reply, "what do you think?" Wife rolls eyes.
Pretty nice for a 1985 bike or so. 15 speed, downtube shifters and the drivetrain had not seen too much use. Totally rebuildable in my opinion. Alas it was too large a frame for me. Went back in to return the tape and reported the bike was too big.
Wife replys, "Why don't you get it for Ben(son) so he can have something to ride when he visits? You need a project anyway." I almost fainted on the spot. The guy that "knows" the price was not at the shop so the deal is in limbo.
Now if I can just get the same "you need a project anyway" response about a nice Look 585 frame!
