I just want a new bike.
Sigh.  I want to upgrade my bike. I have a 16 + year old mountain bike.  It’s been good to me.  I rode a lot more before I got married and had kids.  Highlight was a hiking/biking trip to Moab, Utah.  Beautiful place, great memories.  I really want to go back again.  But my bike. ...
