    Nice bike!
    I also like those Trek 750's
    Too bad no Trek 750 lover isn't close to me in NOLA

    The Kenda- $20 vs $34
    Easy choice
    and it looks "better" for rain

    Depends on HOW MUCH money.
    It might be easier to get a cashiers check-smallish fee- if you don't want to carry the cash.
    Not sure how banks handle that sort of request now a days.
