I can't stress enough how I do not want 2 bikes again. I just do not have the time I used to to actual utilize them. Now with a wife and 2 growing step kids I am a shuttle. I have not missed having a bike, but I have not had or made time to ride one when I did this past summer. My 12K budget is lofty and I hope I don't hit double digits unless I really want to. I just want a dull swiss army knife bike. Does a lot of things ok with a lot of effort at times. Thanks for the article Superzoom, damn I love that bike!
