    this is more like I'm going to ride my road bike.
    A good friend was interested in dipping his toes into road riding, and I have wanted to get back out some on the road. The cost of entry can be steep on bikes, as we all know. So looks like fate stepped in.
    The pres of the companyI work for is Italian, and he likes his road bikes, and as many do he has a few. Emailed me that he has a Scott Addict R2 size xl for sale. Bought the frame in Italy, and shipped it to the US ( Vermont) to his house and built is up with SRAM RED components and Dura Ace Wheels. Pretty much a pro level bike...2010..uncut seat tube. price? $1k.
    I thought to myself this is perfect for my friend that needs an XL and wants to augment the dirt with road. Excellent bike and low cost of entry.

    He bought it, it shipped from Vermont today, and should arrive in a week. It's not going any UPS or anything...nope. Coming on a dedicated truck to Anahiem along with a shipment for a client. So no freight charge, and it's boxed, wrapped in plastic and crated...over kill you think?

    And if anyone noticed, this truck is in an underground quarry. Theres a few hundred yards of Mountain above their head....and a 60 ft ceiling.

    Took the tandem to drop some books off at a LFL nearby. Ended up taking just as many back home with us. Up through Prospect Park and a meander back home.
