As alot of you know I recieved shipment on a Burley Rivazza back in July and love it. My wife loves it too. Have not posted out here in a bit because have not been riding due to wifes neck injuries (pulled muscles) and now she is pregnant.
We both absolutly love the bike and are torn on what to do. We want to keep the bike but don't fore see the abilty to ride it very much. We do not have any family near by to watch the kid while we ride.
Was thinking of selling it but it breaks my heart to do that. It also breaks my heart to think the the the bike may just be an oversized dust collector. Don't get me wrong we are VERY excited about a kid on the way but we both do love the bike.
I also thought about keeping the bike and riding later on in life as we get older and the kid can be left alone for an hour or two. My only issues here are maintnenace. Bikes are like computers in the fact that parts get obsolete on them and they become harder to service with original parts. I am not one of these people who has to have the "bling bling" lastest gizmo on my ride either. I am more of a $$ = performance type or rider, or best bang for the buck.
So anybody else have (or had) the same issues or know somebody in a similar situation? What did you all do?
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
