I bought mine in 2009 for 200.00, it was in really good condition too.

There are currently three for sale on the Madison-Milwaukee-Chicago area CLs.

One for $590, one for $600, and one for $720 :rolleyes:

There's nothing special about the parts on them either.

I had been riding my Trek so much that the next time I rode my SLT I reached down for a shifter that wasn't there :D

A crockpot of any stripe is a luxury item here. Besides that, I cannot recall ever seeing one on a store shelf. Tuna cans, on the other hand, are easy to come by. I also make my own lip balm and could conceivably use that pan. I am a wealthy man in terms of bees wax. Can that be used to wax chains?

Hey, donít blame me for your poor life choices. ;)

Actually I think it would be an awesome place to live if they could fix that little winter issue.

I wouldn't mind the cold, but the mosquitos would keep me away.

You already live in the tundra anyway.

I look at it as an interest free savings account, pretty much the same as my 0.25% bank savings account. :lol:

Tornado warning sirens going off. Tornado sighted 15 miles from us. Guess I’ll wait to go to the grocery store till later. :innocent:

Glad that I got my ride in earlier.

Currently, two spotted 11 miles south of us in the area I was riding in a couple hours ago. One is on the ground in a rural area. Going to be an exciting afternoon. Going to be some missing barns, power poles, etc. tomorrow.

Yikes. Is the pumpkin harvest in danger? It's almost pumpkin spice season.

I think Iíd have to be pretty drunk to order that.

Passed through there in Ď99 while riding across the country then turned north to the lake.

Went to my go-to LBS this morning. Tuesday is the earliest they could fit me in to slap on new brake pads and a new chain. Pickup on Wednesday. Glad they are busy. Half dozen or more new Kona bikes stacked outside. Some were made in Cambodia. Had no idea.

Bah Humbug 07-15-20 02:36 PM

Wow, so I had thought that thread wouldn't unravel my whole left leg of my bike shorts. I was wrong.

datlas 07-15-20 02:44 PM

Busy day. Alarm cat went off early, 4AM. Went out for a local ride with a couple of friends and hurried back to work telemedicine from home all afternoon. Fresh sourdough now in the oven.

Did I miss anything?
