How can a tax problem be bike related? Well, I normally do some contract work during the year and have additional taxes withheld by my employer to cover the additional taxes and avoid a big tax bill at year end. I didn't do extra work last year but failed to change the withholding taxes so I'm left with a nice tax refund this year
It's the first in several years and I intend to spend part of it on a touring bike. I've looked at several bikes including Canndondale, Fuji, Novara and Rivendell but I keep coming back to the Trek 520. I'm sure I've come to this decision based on the fact all my other bikes are Trek and I've been very satisfied with them. My LBS is a Trek dealer and I couldn't find a better one in the area for service.
I already have a black Brooks in the garage just waiting for this bike All these new bikes showing up on 50+ put me in the bike buying mood. This addition shouldl complete the bikes I'll need for my upcoming retirement this year. The trike can wait until I'm too wobbly to ride the other bikes
