Ok, I went over to the dark side! Broke cdown and bought A new ( My first) road bike.
I shopped around a few stores, then took Brandy's advice adn went ot SCC. They did a GREAT job!
For just a couple hundred buck more that the my usual LBS, I ended upgrading to a much higher level!!
Went for a 45 minute ride before I night fell... .
I can hardly wait to get out again!!
Well, Here are pictures!
