    New bike problem?

    Picked up a new road bike and brought it home.iwas changing the pedals and noticed a scratch,another and another.also someone wrote on it witha sharpie.found dirt on the chain and oil dripping from the rear derailleur.i packed it up and returned it to the shop.the owner was there I said. I bought this bike and,he cut me off ,said they gave you that bike?yeeaa! He storms into the back room and starts yelling in a foreign language.I feel a tap on my shoulder and a woman's voice .Time to take your shower!Holy smoke I dreamt this?I. Haven't rode in awhile and been working every day since Christmas..this was strange for me I don't remember ever dreaming about cycling??I need a ride!!!

    A little tweaking and that dream would be epic.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    You didn't tell us what brand/model bike this was.

    No more pizza or spicy foods for you before bed time. At least the LBS owner was yelling at the employees and not you.

    Was the woman part of the dream? Was she offering to take a shower with you?
    And I did it all clean.

    What did the Sharpie writing say? This could be the key to the dream...

    Call in sick, put bike on car, get in car, drive south on the Parkway, get off Parkway at exit 117a, take Rt 36 to Sandy Hook. Park, get out of car. GET ON BIKE!! Cruise to the end of the Hook. Ride south to Asbury Park(Greetings!). Stop at Second Life Bikes, good folks, and say hello. Continue south 'till you've had enough, say Belmar, or Spring Lake. Have lunch. Turn around, go back to the Hook. Drive home a new man.
    If you don't know the way, you shouldn't be going there.
