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

New Bike Jinx ?

Maybe it's me but every time I get a new bike it either gets scratched or wrecked within 2 or 3 weeks. It's kind of like when you get a new car and your just waiting for that first scratch to piss you off. Then when it happens it's almost a relief(in a sick kind of way). My first nice road bike was scratched while driving to the lbs. Bike was on rack and I drove over rr tracks enroute to it's first once over by tech. Second nice (carbon) bike was involved in a wreck two months after purchase, minimal damage but I know the scratches are there and I'm always po'd when I think about it. anyone else have this jinx?

I only care if the scratch is deep enough to expose the metal
