So....I've been in the market for a new road bike. A Cannondale to be exact...built in the USA. Today, I've been riding and enjoying my 16 year old Trek mountain bike. It's a heavy bike with knobby tires ...it slows me down. I wanted a new bike to motivate me to ride. However .... That Trek got me hooked hooked. Really hooked. Not sure if I'll be selling it when I find my Cannondale ....the Trek and I have groaned close.
The Trek did it's job. I'm now a cyclist ;-)
I've got my "LiveStrong" yellow bracelet, I subscribe to LiveStrong website, and I find myself checking out cyclists (men in tights)....specifically the size of their legs. A little scary, but true. My eating habits have drastically changed and I can't wait for the rain to stop so I can squeeze in another ride.
For the last couple of months, I've been oodeling through multiple local classified systems looking for a bargain. I spent most of my hours on Connecticut's most popular classifieds system and a lot time on that "guys" list. I'm sorry to report that my search for a Cannondale is still ongoing.
But, there is good news. My time spent on these sites have inspired me to resurrect a similar system that I had written 6 years ago. A free classified system called Fetchmore.
