Because the right number of bikes is often one more than what you currently have. I wasn’t looking for a new bike but this one seemed to find me. I picked it up for such a low price that I could not turn it down. Luckily my wife is onboard with this. I’m shooting for 3500 miles this year and I find being able to mix it up helps me stay interested and stops me from burning out. 271 miles left to go before the end of the year. Should be a piece of cake but who knows what the weather and the holidays will bring.
I sold this bike on 10/31/2016 as the Lynskey is now my main bike.
