N+1 Strikes Again
I had no intention of acquiring another ride this year....but.....a friend of mine told me recently about a tri-bike he had seen at an lbs in Sarasota. An Aegis with a carbon fiber frame, totally reconditioned by the store mechanic including Ultegra gears, some Cane Creek components, Mavic Wheels, new brakes, chain etc etc. He also said he couldn't find a scratch on it. I asked him to send some pics and fell in love with it. The shop wanted $600, I offered 5 and got it! Going to FLA to ride for a week next month then my riding buddy will bring it back with him in April.
When I told my wife she said "what the f---k do you need another bike for?" So I had to explain in detail the N+1 equation and when i finished, she sighed and said "have fun with it". So I'm excited to see and ride it, at 65 years of age I won't be doing any triathlons but from what my friend says she rides smooth and shifts like butter so soon I will see for myself. Knowing nothing counts without a picture, hopefully the link below will work.
