Put a Down Payment on a new bike... Rue the day!

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

Put a Down Payment on a new bike... Rue the day!

In order to give myself motivation to not off myself before spring... I put a down payment on a new bike...

I bet people are going to wonder.. What type of bike is he getting that he can Rue the day?..

An 09 Roubaix SL2 Module with Carbon Chorus 10 speed groupset and some Fusee E5 wheels with 3 red spokes for Emo power..

oh the madness! I told them Id pick it up April 3rd on my birthday... or the first 65 degree day in march


I shall Rue up and down the Hudson with Pcad!

What the hell. I've got plenty of rue to offer.

Honestly, I'd take your rig over PCaddy's. Not sure about the wheels, though.

I will try and be as Pcad like as possible with the anticipation of my new bike..

however, my bike actually exists and is at the shop waiting for me to simply come in and pay it off... Im putting a timeline on myself because getting it now means looking at it for 2 months inside.. which is zzzzz

Dark horse Cycles in Montgomery, My shop of choice..

After sundays throwdown..


And me wussing out, and leaving early cause I wanted to throw up.. I figured, I might as well buy myself some inspiration to train hard.. because not backing up the SL2 screams Posuer..
