I know that I promised myself that I would wait until I actually saw the money in my paycheck before I made any move towards this bike, but I could not contain myself and I ended up scoring a pair of Woody’s fenders on eBay:
I like the lacewood pattern, and I think that the combination of walnut and “bloodwood” will compliment the mahogany tint to my saddle. What I may end up doing is swapping the braces with my SKS fenders, which have the “break-away” connection at the braze ons.
So its not really a bike – just part of the bike. So maybe I shouldn’t feel so guilty just yet. At some point soon I suppose I’m going to have to drop the bomb with “she who must be obeyed” that a new bike is going to show up….especially when she starts asking questions when she sees the fenders arrive. I did buy some degreaser to clean up the Cannondale, so my intentions are certainly there. (insert obnoxious smiley face here) Now I have to decide if I should also sell the Marin or the Bonty.
BTW: the supplement juice that I’m trying right now is called Mona Vie. I haven’t had a chance to do any search on it yet.
