Well in a twist on the usual "which bike should I buy: a or b," I have the "which bike should I sell" dilemma! My boyfriend laid down the terms: One of my mountain bikes has to go. I'm really, really awful at getting rid of any of my bikes. I get attached/sentimental and find all these reasons for why I should keep both. My riding buddies are split on the matter and one suggested posting here. (I'm too embarrassed to post this under my real username though.) I'm 5'5" with a 29.5 inseam.
The bikes in question are:
2009 Salsa mamasita (rasta colors, scandium frame w/rear carbon stays)
2011 Niner Air9 (Jet Grey, Scandium frame)
Both are size small, although the Salsa is definitely larger. Same setup for both with a shorter stem and straight post on the Salsa. I like them both a lot! I had planned on converting one to a single speed to try out last winter, but some bike projects always seem to get shuffled back. I know this is a good problem to have as I'll still be left with an awesome bike, but I just need someone to kick my indecisive butt into gear!
Thanks for indulging me! I appreciate it!
