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

Dude, that's an awesome deal! But I don't know if maybe 28 lbs is a little too feathery for me. I mean, what if I try to climb a hill and there's no work at all, but then I'll try to go down the other side and gravity won't help.

It's pretty amazing to think that the bike's current owner was able to remove six pounds by changing the components and stuff. One great thing about those Denalis is that they have a lot of room for improvement!

I'm close to Binghamton, but not close enough that I'd be willing to stop by and talk to the guy for the sake of the luls...

"The frame and fork are untouched, but everything else has been upgraded."

Like that's a "good" thing!

I think he's just a local guy who fixes some bike and tries to flip them. He is always listing odd bikes and parts for high prices, and relisting ad naseum. You think he'd get the idea that his prices are too high for the stuff he's trying to unload.

Notice in his ad here he says he'll sell on consignment, but no WalMart Schwinns. I guess WalMart Denalis are ok.

He'll also "blow up" my tires.

I don't want them blown up. I want them inflated.
