bros, I need helpz:
I can get this, used, for $1900+ shipping.

I can get a CAAD10 replacement frame for $700, wheel for $400, RD and chain for $120, totaling $1220.
Buy a CAAD10 105 for $1400 (ugly frame, **** 105).

What do I do? The only problem with the Evo is that its pretty nice and I'd hate to trash the frame because it can't be replaced, unlike a CAAD10.

Just sold my Moots Vamoots with Dura Ace to another old guy who probably won't ride it. What a waste.

Nibbles wins tour. Some are saying cleanest tour in years. Your thoughts.

Cleanest Tour in years? Why, were the sanitation workers not on strike?

I don't understand the options, but I don't think that I would ever choose a frame based on crash replacement policy. I know you had a big one recently, but I hope that is not the norm. Over 12 years of semi-serious riding, I have crashed a fair amount, but only twice was the frame totally unusable after.

So true. Anytime I have been in France there has been some kind of major labour action happening.

Finally biked to work on Friday for the first time thanks in part to a busted heater core, but I had been meaning to start anyway. It's about 31 miles total, with a net uphill on the way home. That plus the temp increase followed by my fatigue from the morning made it a good bit slower but I still enjoyed it. I was super alert in the morning which I haven't felt in a while. I usually do not exercise in the AM.

I'm glad I've had previous years of road biking experience. The work commuter traffic attitude definitely makes it less comfortable to share the road.

Good grief, 15.5 miles in to work? Do you have a shower at your workplace?

Yeah we do, which is nice for a quick wash of the hair and pits. Luckily I don't sweat much so I don't smell of death if I skip a full shower.

I was pleased with my cardio which coped handily while my legs were burning quite a bit. It lessened as I progressed through the ride which was nice.

Sick bike hustler, thanks for the kind words about my NM pics.

Had an epic lost lake ride this weekend. For those of you in the know, this trail takes you right up near wheeler peak (the highest point in NM, almost 14k feet elev). It's about a 20 mile total trip, which might not sound like much to you road guys, but trust me it's an all day epic.

We crushed it, did it in about 3 pulls on the way up. Blew a bunch of hikers minds that we were riding it. Hung out with some forest service guys at the top who were really cool, and didn't care about us riding the trail (which is kind of a gray area around here).

Adding 150 miles per week commuting to work must be awesome for fitness.

Congrats on the new-to-you bike.

Commuting is indeed beneficial. Recovery ride every morning.

I have commuted by bike on and off for about 30 years. Shortest was about 12 miles round trip. Longest was around 2003, when I worked at Ellsworth bikes in the original location Ramona, CA. 72 mile round trip with about 2200' of total climbing. Did that 2-4x a week plus 10hrs or so on the weekends for quite a while. Best shape of my life.

Google map of that commute with elevation

From this day forward, you have to paypal Andrew and I one US dollar each for every time you say that. Unless you do move here, in which case, we'll both buy you a beer. Or you could move to the west side of Austin, which is kinda like Cali

If my GF changes her mind and decides to move, or finds someone better, I'm doing everything I can to transfer to the San Francisco or Denver office.
