Resisting temptation

I did good tonight,I resisted the temptation to bid on a "Streetstrider" at the local auction. It had a 8 speed Nexus hub and two Strumey Archer front hub brakes plus required gear to operate all three units. They were all thirty six spoke hubs. Plus a Kinetic indoor trainer setup was included in the package. It went for $150 Cdn, I thought about buying the set-up and stripping the hubs out and building a bike with them. But I resisted bidding, I know call me "Idiot". The regular price is $1600 US plus so the guy who bought it got a great deal and plans on setting the rig up in the basement as a trainer. http://www.streetstrider.com/

another new thing and I'm still learning about recumbents. Do you have to grow a beard before being to be allowed to ride that thing also?
