A freind of mine who owns some apartments caught a tenant doing a fade oweing three months back rent. The guy gave him a merlin titanium roadbike, full dura ace with flight deck, absolute top of the line stem, post, bar, really nice seat. Its about a 2005, low miles. the frame has that sort of inset design patterns all around the BB shell and the headset. its really nice.
I knew this guy, he used to work at my favorite bike shop and I know the rig is not hot. It also fits me perfectly. I can't scrape the three months rent up($1500) for the bike, but I may be able to do some blacksmithing shop work in trade.
My only problem is that I don't know if I really need a bike this nice. I would have no where to really ride it around where I live, I am 215 lbs and it has 16 spoke wheels, and generaly I don't need another bike.
But I am filled with lust. I keep thinking about it, gathering dust in his garage.
What do you think?
