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.
