I’d planned to wait until I got down to 220 pounds, but I decided that a: 30 pounds lost was a huge milestone, b: 230 is a nice round number also, and c: the deal was too good to pass up.
I spotted this Trek 1200 on Craig’s list this morning. I was afraid I was too late, as the ad had been posted last night, but I sent an e-mail. It’s rare to see bicycles in 60 cm frame size. I was figuring the best I’d find would be a 58. But, staring me in the face was the perfect bike. It’s a 2001, but it doesn’t appear to have been ridden more than a few hundred miles. A quick tuneup, a new rear inner tube, and it was off for a ride this afternoon. Good times.
The previous owner was even kind enough to throw in 4 jerseys (including a long sleeve). I guess I’m going to have to pass them on before too long, though, as I’m going to “under grow” XL!
