I tend to do shopping therapy. that bad date recently? the second I got home I hit the online shopping sites. when I spent a fortune in New Orleans at my buddy's bachelor party? got a new computer.
you see how it goes.
so I just closed on my new house today (yesterday morning, actually; tonight was another long story, but anyway) and I'm a little conflicted. so I went to the LBS where I test rode the owner's personal Bianchi Axis. he intimated that he might be persuaded to make a deal on it, so, long story short, I got a 2002 Bianchi Axis for USD$1000. I figure being owned by the (competitive) owner of a LBS is better than being owned by a little old lady who only drove it to church on Sundays. it looks fantastic to my inexperienced eyes.
whaddya think? good deal or no? (apologies if this post isn't very coherent; I'm also on the phone as I'm typing this.)
edit to apologise to mods: I just noticed how these axis threads got moved here ... sorry about that. I don't really go anywhere except general discussion, so i wasn't thinking about where I should be posting.
