Congratulations, wolfpack. Does "'skinny' bike" = new road bike?

yea, skinny bike=new bike, but i'm gonna wait till i reach the goal weight i set at the beginning of the year before the purchase. by that time, around may/june or hopefully earlier, i'll be at goal and i will have saved enough to get a new one. thinking of a Blue RC6 or NX7 or Fuji Team RC/Pro......but, as usual will get the one that fits and is the fastest

Actually there is no telling what he would take depending on the tax bracket it may place her in. It could be the traditional 33% on the high side which I err toward as what they may take. If not and that places her in the next bracket and she only makes 1/2% over that bracket then yes, that will sting.
