Change of plans…

leave a comment »

So I’ve been thinking about the possibility of getting a different bike entirely instead of the Cinelli Vigorelli. I still absolutely want this Cinelli but I am having some problems with committing to it. I need a geared bike. I need a bike I can tour with (Portland to San Francisco). I need a bike that doesn’t cost as much as the Cinelli because I want to have a good standard of living in the meantime I save. This leaves me with these possibilities: The Surly Cross-Check or Long Haul Trucker.

Lately it’s been in the low 20’s throughout the night and not much higher during the day. This isn’t great riding weather…& tonight I slipped on some ice. Thankfully wasn’t going too fast or it would have been worse. I believe I strained my wrist, I can rotate it pretty well without an increase in pain, so I lucked out hopefully by not breaking it.
