SOLD!

Posting this as a tribute to my first race bike
(not including the Apollo I did some kiddie tri's on).

The "Skansen Venom NinetyOne" (mouthful!) in
the shot has since had new fangled seatpost added
to stop the old one ripping my nicks, tyres, cluster
and chain. Stickers have also been removed since
that photo was taken. Other bits were added but
then removed pre-sale.

That's one unused bike less for me, $150 in my
pocket and another cyclist hooning around Melbourne.

happy

Where did you sell it? I have a bike of similar quality that I want to
get rid of, but don't know where to start- I've advertised it on BA
Classifieds but thats it.

Oh, and why aren't you ever at the track, hmm? :mad: ;) I'll email you
the training times again, I don't think you got them last time...

That's funny actually. I have msn messenger installed (chat client)
and I have this fridge that I want to sell. I just stuck it in my msn
signin name for a laugh, thinking one of my mates might want a
fridge one day. After it had been there for a while one of them
hassled me about it saying the price was too high and that's why
it hasn't sold. I argued the point and somehow it got me changing
the details about the fridge every day. e.g. "Fridge, likes walks
in the park, candlelit dinners: $200".
A guy I shared with at uni cracked up one day and in the ensuing
conversation, asked if I knew anyone with a bike for sale, under
$500 for his mate. I assumed they wanted an mtb (doesn't
everyone? ;-)) but mentioned the bikes I had. Sent him the link to
the road bike picture, said $150 and he showed the guy that wanted
the bike and the deal was practically done.

Yeah, see my other post about making excuses.. I'll get down
there one day, really I will ;-)
This week is a write-off anyway.. I've basically stopped riding
because I'm frustrated with my METEC crit performances of late.
I think it is due to starting the races without a warmup but I'm
taking time of the bike so I've got some energy for the Kona
24hr race.
Keep hassling me.. I'll get my freewheel-lovin' butt down there
eventually! :)
