Addiction LXXX

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Negatory, it doesn’t sound busted, but if it is, I’m just going to order a custom frame from Serotta and get new brifters, rotors and calipers

no bueno, but your replacement plan sounds golden.

Any idea on how that could have happened?

In a way it's a reflection of the culture, but I'm sure there would be more road cyclists here if the roads were more bicycle friendly (shoulders, etc). As they are, you've got to be pretty serious to want to tackle them.
