I'm itching to get out on a road bike again. I love my old steel, but unfortunately Illinois loves their road salt more. I do wish that I didn't have to worry about rust.

Locally there is a dirt cheap 1996 Cannondale R500 that's been tempting me terribly. It's likely too small, but it's one of the polished aluminum ones that I've always dreamed of.
