Have you ever bought anything without doing adequate research only to find out that it might not be what you actually needed?
Well, I'm think I'm guilty of this with my Bike purchase.
When I bought my Madone last year, it was one of those "Hey, that's a hot road bike and I really have to have one.". The Madone is a great Bike for someone who is a hard core roadie or racer. But, that's not me.
What I should have done was a bit more research to find out that I wanted a road bike, but one with a bit more relaxed geometry and therefore, comfort.
Had I done so, I would have saved myself a lot of hassle, and money, trying to make my Madone into what I needed instead of what I thought I wanted.
Is it just me? Or, has anyone else duplicated this action?
