Experimental music, photography, and adventures

I posted my Giant OCR2 on Craigslist just after midnight on Tuesday. As in, it had just transitioned from Monday to Tuesday. Today, I sold it, for the asking price + some extra for the clipless pedals which I had planned on keeping. The guy who bought it was very enthusiastic about the bike, and getting into some serious riding. I’m confident it went to a good home, and now I have some extra money in the bank. I’m amazed that I sold it so quickly and easily.

Unfortunately, most of the money will go to pay for x-rays and physical therapy for my finger. Easy come, easy go.

    So, help me out…..why ditch the OCR, great bike etc. especially for the hilly. Are you no longer planning on doing the HH? Absolutely great photos! Really keeps me motivated during my training rides and looking forward to the 2008 HH…..hope to see you there!

    Dave … do I know you? Trying to figure out if you’ve commented on my blog before.

    If you haven’t been following my blog I suppose selling the road bike wouldn’t make a lot of sense. I sold it because I got a touring bike, a Surly Long Haul Trucker, which will be great for the Hilly too (not as fast, but if you ride the Hilly as a race, I really think you’re missing the point).

    I rode the Hilly last year, and hope to do it again this year. I’m not 100% sure yet, but more likely than not, I’ll be there.

    Okay – glad it went to a good home. Sad that the money was already spent on your injuries. Somehow that doesn’t seem altogether karmic, so expect something wonderful to be coming your way soon, I guess.

    Well played, sir! I’m still hesitating on selling my Giant Perigee. I honestly can’t think of any use for it now, unless I figure out how to weld braze points w/o compromising the frame, but I just can’t seem to part with it, either…
