Well, I am back on the wagon! I decided to "let go". He is on his way to pick up my 1982 Medici . Don't worry , I'm building a newer version in the correct size , 64cm. It is tough to let go but this will motivate me to finish the other Medici!

Is it possible to fall further off the wagon when youíre already off?

Just picked up this craigslist univega nuovo sport, sans front wheel, for a song. I donít need another bike. I kept telling myself I was saving it from the dumpster. At least this one actually is my size.
No more internet for me

Is this some sort of a 'not getting new bikes' wagon? Is anyone intentionally jumping on that one here, in this place?

Acknowledging the existence of the wagon itself is a painful admission of... something. Thatís the first step to healing, right? RIGHT??
