    N+1 finally

    My last new road bike purchase was in 1976, although I did inherit a slightly used one in the mid 1980s that I have been using since then. This is much more bike than I need, but I am enjoying it. What a change going from downtube shifters to Di2. Kind of sad, though to cut back so much on the miles I was putting on the old one - it probably has 50,000 miles on it, or more. I guess that means I have at least 50,000 miles on me, too .

    Wow, you really jumped over tons of technology. From 6 speed downtube shifters to di2 - wow.

    I think you were due.

    As others have said, you jumped right into the deep end of high tech cycling with that bike. It gets great reviews, hope you do your next 50,000 on it.
    And I did it all clean.
