You guys are all just a bunch of enablers. Bad Bad Bad
Anyway, I'm pretty excited... Yesterday was Mrs S' birthday and a nice one it was especially when she told me over brunch that next weekend she wanted to go out and look for a bike She's never been a very accomplished rider and truth be told she's pretty skittish about being on a bike bur she's a plucky lass and is ready to get back on the horse.
She saw one of these at the ToC LifeStyle (gawd, I hate that word) Festival and while it might not be my cup o' tea I'm not gonna be the one riding it.
So, I told her we could go to the shop -right next to Golden Gate Park which they close to motor traffic on Sundays- and I'd find a bike to take out with her so I could answer any questions and just lend general moral support ("You can do it...yeah! That's it! You've got it. Ride! Ride!"). I figure, since I've never ridden a carbon frame, I'd give that a shot but I'm afraid... what if I get smitten? She says I could always trade one in but I'm not ready to let go of the LeMond just yet (heck, I only have 1700+ miles on it). Help me. Help meeeeee....
