It goes like this....

Mr Indecisive

Mr Indecisive buys a frame.

I had been going back and forth on fancy or functional, steel or aluminum. Did I want something I could just ride on the cheap or do I suck it up and go big? We all know its the rider not the bike so do I really need all the bling? Lightweight bikes sure are pretty, but come on, I am 190 on a good day. Is a 4lb frame really that much better than a 5lb frame. What am I sacrificing by hauling that 1lb and what am I giving up in ride quality in that lightweight 4lb frame? I have been riding bikes for a while so I should know these answers. It really comes down to pear pressure vs. reality. Do I care if I have the latest and greatest and what do I really want to do on my bike?

If you know me, you know the answer.

Pics to follow.

at least you didn't have to deal with 'apple pressure,' because that is the worst.
