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

I'm so excited!

It looks like I might be getting a roadbike worth about $2000 (in New Zealand dollars) for just $100, through my sister's boyfriend. That's 5 percent of the original price! I just hope that it's not too big for me or anything. That would be devastating...

Fingers crossed.

You sound disturbingly like me. The custodian at work hates bringing me my packages, because a new shipment of books makes me jump around and clap my hands like a kid. (Which is also something I do with every major bike purchase).

OP is wrong. It's worth $1200 not $2000. 2k would really be way too good to be true.

Oh, update, I've paid 60 out of the 100 for the bike and will get it soon hopefully. It's silver, and it's an "Avanti". Avanti are good because they sponsor Olympics athletes.
