goodbye, to an old friend.
with the joy of finding the right new bicycle also came the bittersweet feeling that i was going to have to say goodbye to the old one. in the 3 years that i owned this steel beauty, i went through 3 chains, two rear cassettes, 4 sets of tires, and logged close to 5000 miles.
although the bicycle still fit me just fine, i had just about outgrown its entry level components. it was good to find a new home for it this week - hard to let it go, but happy to know that it will provide someone else many more miles of fun.
for those wanting pictures of my new ride, be patient. it is on it's way to california as we speak. thanks once again for those who supported ben's bicycle quest!
for those bike nerds out there, here are the original specs.
