    Pull the trigger!!!

    The "super rare" Rabobank forehead sweatband included has to be worth 5K alone.

    Contact the seller pronto and advise that a Bank of Nigeria wire transfer is on its way.

    No kickstand. I'd pass.

    That is a sweet frame but WTF.

    I've got nothing against triple cranks but if you're trying to sell that it's a pro bike I don't think so.

    It's pretty obvious what's going on here.

    Wife: You have too many bikes. You need to sell one.
    Husband: Okay, dear. I'll sell one on Craigslist.

    ***months later***

    Wife: Did you sell a bike like I told you to?
    Husband: I put it on Craigslist. But nobody seems to be interested. I don't know why...

    Maybe this is a better "Road" bicycle?
    Should I be worried that it says "Trail" on it? Or, is that just a brand of "road" bike? Like a "Giant" bike is not just for people over 7 foot?

    Live vicariously through yourself.
    There are no physical laws that govern the will.
    I refuse to be afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I'm down with today.

    Obvious why it's so expensive. It's got a steel fork AND a carbon fork. Niiice, double forked bike! Those are rare indeed
