My Bacchetta Giro 20 was the first bike that I spent much of any money to buy in the past several decades. It was a gift to myself for finishing up my divorce and getting out of deep debt.
I did buy a Giant Stiletto four years ago, but that was pretty cheap on eBay, and previously I hadn't bought a bike in a bike store since 1979.
It seemed that the more I put into buying a bike, the faster it got stolen. The bike I bought in 1979 lasted a month before it was taken out from under me,while I still have the bike I traded for a load of wood in 1978. I had adopted the policy of not buying any bike that I couldn't afford to lose. My main bike, an early '90s Hard Rock, was a freebie.
So I was apprehensive when I bought the Giro 20, especially considering that some of the poorly-employed youth living in my apartment complex seemed to take notice of it. But a year later, they are gone and the Bacchetta is still here.
