If you go back in history in this forum you will see my posts reguarding the purchase of this bike back in 2005. It was bought with my late wife who died of FTD www.caringbridge.org/visit/roxannethomsen Before she passed she gave birth to my son who is now almost 6 years old. I have since gotten remarried. My new wife is not much of a cyclist and with our little man running around the house we decided it would be best to sell it to somebody who will use it. Who ever gets it is getting one heck of a fun and fast bike!
