Even at $200 off MSRP, that bike still looks like it costs a tidy sum. At least, the $200 can go for pedals.

Now, that looks like a bike I could ride (oops! just checked... $3200 MSRP? maybe not ).

Sleek, sexy, understated.... nice!

Definitely not enough said.


Should have waited till tomorrow when the wife saw it and would not believe that you traded it in for your old bike and $100. Then we could get a ride report and you could tell us what it is like riding with a headache from the baseball bat.

Great bike and great spec. Can't wait for the PIE and ride report .

Actually the list was $2900 and the $200 off had to do with the store having its 25th anniversary.
My wife allows me the very best in toys and ..........well, she's just the best!
I'll definitely supply pics & a ride report.
