sticker shock!

So, after today's endurance racing clinic at Addictive Cycles, the group ride was cancelled because of the rain. Eddie and I hung out at the shop and sat down with Code Red to order our parts for our new bikes, as well as some replacement parts for our current bikes. We only ordered stuff we REALLY NEEDED like chains, chainrings, new handlebar, cassette (for Eddie), etc. When Code told us the total I about had a heart attack. Luckily he added wrong, so when he re-added everything up the total was still big but after hearing the first number for some reason I was OK with the new one. Bike parts are expensive. Period. So, when we finally got home we went straight to the garage to start pulling stuff out to sell. We have TONS OF STUFF to sell, cheap. We have to sell it all in order to pay for our incoming stuff. I'm not posting it here but if you are really interested you can check out Eddie's site--right hand site under "Pages". Sorry, we can't ship, though..pickup only, so if you're not local..might as well not look.

Anyway, our parts should arrive on Wednesday so we will go back up to Addictive Cycles that day to get em done. I've decided on NO PINK for this bike. It will be simple black/white with the ti frame. Super sexy and sleek is the plan.

Nam, I am so looking forward to seeing your build! I won't get to see it in person until The Burn but I bet you'll be hot. So is Eddie going pink on his? :) ha ha ha

You should see my "tab" that I have going at Velo City. I might have to take out a loan to pay it off.
