OK, I like this new rig

It comes down to this: I have three REALLY nice bikes, and must sell one. I can’t justify travelling 3000 miles with 3 bikes. I bought a ‘wrecked’ police car that I’m going to apply my roof rack to. The rig is designed for ‘highway patrol’ so I think I’m going to be relatively safe.

Toying with the idea of selling the Landshark. (no I’m not) busted my winter wheel, time to clean her up and put the GOOD wheels on ‘er. (…to have and to hold) take the glamour shots in departing sunlight (the frame doesn’t fit) and degrade this legendary bicycle with a Seattle craigslist post. (through highway and through trail) No, no I’m not… (…till death do us part) For ten years I have loved you.  TEN YEARS  – - – (keep keep keep keep)

And the black Aegis 57cm roadie – (it’s SO fast!  I was in some burly traffic and took the lane today) I’m giving it a month more and in the meantime, I’m going to ride this better frame-fitting bike, and consider the unthinkable. (Not a Chance*)
