    My Bike Died today :(

    I don't know why I'm posting this. I guess it's just my way of letting go. It hurts, bad. Now I'm walking

    That's a Benotto Modelo 2000 if I'm not mistaken? Sorry she's gone. She looks like a sweet ride.

    Ah, sorry. I guess it's common with Benotto's but the seat tube cracked at the bb casing... real bad, like almost not connected at all. I guess it was a problem that grew unnoticed by me. AAHAHGCHAHHH........ah. So now I'm bikeless. Until I get a new frame off ebay, I'm walking, that's at least a week and a half. My heart hurts.

    Dang. I'll have to let my Benotto-owning buddy know about that.
