…may get another bike… December 29, 2007

Possibly picking up a road bike off Craigslist.

Taking a look at a Giant OCR tomorrow. Don’t know which one it is, or exactly how old it is yet, though it is the 6061 aluminum framed low-end model. Whether I get it depends on how it fits. It may be a tad small at 60/61cm, but we’ll see tomorrow. They are only asking $250 including headlight and u-lock.

It would be nice to have a dedicated weekend road bike, and enjoy some faster rides, rather than using my commuter/tourer/hybrid bike.

Eventually, I’ll have three bikes. A commuter, a dedicated tourer, and a road bike. I already have the commuter, and I don’t mind buying a used low-end road bike, but I’d like to build the tourer. A custom built (by me) Surly Long Haul Trucker would fit the bill perfectly. Oh well, someday. For now I’ll settle for a cheap road bike.

If I get it, I’ll post pics and let you know how it rides 🙂
