OMG I'm selling my road bike!
After several good years and many good/bad times with this bike, I'm selling it. The truth is I don't ride it enough in NYC to keep it. The bars are too wide to maneuver through traffic, and the brakes on the drops mean your hands have to be constantly in the "mirror zone" if you want to use them. The wheels are too fragile for NYC potholes, and you don't need gears in the city. I never make it out of the city to do any distance riding, so my fixed-gear has become my primary bike and this thing has been collecting dust and only been ridden 3 times this year.

Thanks for the memories and broken bones, I only hope its successors will be as exciting :)
