i've been fooling with the idea of getting a new bike. my current ride is a ~10 year old handed down trek 800 (cromoly seat-tube).
shifting is shifty, tires are fat, and i'm sitting quite upright. but i've used this thing for about 3-4 years, and i'm tolerating the deficiencies of this bike.
now, to come to think of it, why should i upgrade? what benefits come with a quality bike?
this bike has done pretty much everything i've asked it to do. i'm looking to commute in the fall, if that means anything.
