The challenge...

The boys at the office have challenged me to go for the next 30 days without buying a bike.

That's after I found this puppy on Craigslist.
It's a 2006 Scattante R560 Triple, with a triple chainring up front, Shimano 105 shifters and derailleurs, and a carbon fiber fork and seat post. It also included a computer, water bottle cages and a cargo wedge. I gave $400 for it, and it was about a $1200 bike when it was new. It's been ridden for 425 miles or so and looks almost brand new. And just in tooling around the parking lot at work, it's pretty damn fast. Now we'll see how it does on the road!
