I think I’m finally going to cave in and admit that if I’m going to be spending 90% of my riding time on the road, I should probably look into getting a proper road bike instead of riding my mountain bike with slicks on it. So, here begins the journey. First off, I need to sell my mountain bike. It’s a Gary Fisher branded, Trek made OCLV (all carbon fiber frame) bike and it’s a bit special. It’s the Paola Pezzo team issue bike from 97 or 98 and it was only given to folks who rode for Fisher (or so I’m told). I picked up the bike off a semi-pro racer friend back in Michigan when I was riding more often and it’s served me fairly well, if infrequently. The bike is kitted with full Shimano XTR components and V-brakes and front suspended, so it’s one of the lightest mountain bikes you’ll ever ride. If I remember right, I think it’s a 17″ frame and the original owner was around 5’8″, 140lbs. If you’re interested in taking it off my hands, drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m looking for $1000.
