Buying a bike

Written on: Friday May 4th, 2007

A journal entry from: A slow bike to China


We did it! It's been days of grueling research, wim tossing and turning in bed, moaning,"rohloff, rohloff", a smorgasbord of bike part options and prices, long sweaty hours in bike shops. And now the tough part: waiting 8 to 10 weeks for it to arrive. Here's what we got: The Santos Travelmaster: steel frame, brooks leather saddles, Ortlieb saddlebags, rohloff gears, 26" mountain bike tires, and hydrolic brakes. We will both be off dreaming in the meantime of wide open spaces and barbacued dog.
