Definitely, keep it. The reality is that the bike is probably worth more to you, personally, than its market value. I've sold a few bikes on eBay and regret not keeping them for no more than they brought, which was market correct for them.

I just bought a Zipp Service Course SL stem on a whim. It was cost +10 and the right angle (-17)

edited to add: I agree with Ducnut. Chatter should optimally be routed to the Bicycle Thread. HOWever, it seems that we have a few people that don't post in that thread here. Who knows, they may not know it exists, or they're skeered of the size. ...and thinking about it... I've never taken pics of bikes I'm riding, just the ones that are for sale.

...and 'that thread' too.

Keep posting pics/etc and you won't have to worry about the Zipp pic for too much longer.

But if you were an insufferable self centered prick you would have made the pic 100 times larger.
