    You and me both

    I bought this bike today: https://www.trekbikes.com/us/en_US/b...Code=red_black

    With the options I’m selecting when I pick it up (a shop near me is building it, it should be ready tomorrow or this weekend), it’s more like $5,500. I can’t wait to ride it!

    Did you have your wrecked one rebuilt?

    That’s a pretty solid mountain bike, great color!

    My Ridley was rebuilt, it cost about $500 total to do.

    Finally got through the really rough early grind in Rogue Legacy 2. My stupid bluetooth headphones still making glitch noises though, so I'm still stuck with my wireless headphones with one ear muff missing.

    That game looks fun, I think I’ll try it out

    Made in Bellingham Washington. Super nice bikes, but also very expensive

    Going to keep both bikes, maybe have the Ridley as a backup or for a friend to use and ride with you?

    Probably worth having them, though. I know most places do payment plans, if you can work something out...

    I'll have three bikes: my Trek FX2, which is my heavy hybrid winter bike, then my Ridley Phaeton-T, my light triathalon/TT aero bike, and finally my pride and joy: my new Trek Emonda SL6 eTap, my wireless electronic-shifting, cable-integrated, carbon-fiber road bike. Most likely I'll keep my Ridley around for short sprint rides - that's where it excels - and use my Emonda for my daily/long endurance rides, say 30-120 mile rides. I don't know if I'd let anyone use my bikes, and my partner has his own Trek FX3 hybrid.

    Okay the Sinfall Gravewing is probably one of the coolest mounts I've had in a long time. A favorite
