What to do with this bike?
At Sunday's Tour de Cure, there was a drawing for a new Bianchi road bike. Amazingly, they pulled my name!
Sadly, I was not present at the drawing - at the time, I was suffering somewhere on Tunitas Creek - so I picked it up this morning from the American Diabetes Association's office. It's a Via Nirone 7 / Sora Mix Compact
, which is certainly more than I could ask for given that it was a gift.
(Ignore the Veloce group in the pic, this was the only image I could find of the white paint job and Jalco rims)
Problem is, it's a 55 cm, and the correct size for me is probably 59 cm, since my current bike is a 60 cm Trek.
So the question is, what should I do with this bike? My main options seem to be:
- Sell it and use the money towards a new bike or to upgrade my current bike
- Keep it around for friends who want to come on rides with me but don't have a bike
- Call Bicycle Outfitter and see if they'll exchange it for a different size
Any thoughts / other ideas?
