    I've never done a TT so my first one will be my best, so $100 would cover a stop very nicely

    I probably wouldn't even notice. When I'm riding all out, I really don't notice anything.

    A cool grand would almost get me into a new set of Zipp 303s ... For a grand I'd hit the brakes. Is that greedy of me?

    If you were unwise enough to be brandishing that money like a cup at a road race?

    then, YOINK! -- as I zapped by.

    I't would have to be "A cool Grand" because I haven't got a clue what a "Ten Spot" or "C-Note " is

    If I saw you holding out a pot by the side of the road I'd figure you were begging and throw you my banana or something

    If you're standing on the side of the road with cash in your hand just to give to me, I'll take it. I can do the time trial another day and who knows, maybe you'll be there with more cash just for me.

    100$ will get me another upgrade, 1000$ will get me some dam fine nice new parts. And I'd be happier with the new parts, and have a mediocre ride, than having my best ride ever. After all this situatuion doesn't come around everytime.

    $1000 will do just fine. We bought a house recently, I'm going to need that money for a better kitchen....
