I regret selling my Surly LHT. I want another one. One way to fund a new one is to sell an existing bike.
Here’s what I currently have:
- Surly Big Dummy
- Rawland rSogn
- Bacchetta Agio Recumbent
- Salsa Fargo
- Raleigh Record single-speed
- Trek T-900 Tandem
- Specialized Crossroads (Diane’s)
- Norco VFR4 (Diane’s)
Diane’s bikes and the tandem are staying. The recumbent is staying. I don’t ride it much, but when my neck flares up, I need it. The single-speed is in pieces, but I intend to fix it. I miss it. The Rawland is definitely staying. (Sorry Scott). That leaves the Fargo and the Big Dummy.
I had decided to sell the Fargo to fund a new LHT. Then I’d sell the Big Dummy to simplify. I can’t live without a car now that I’m married to Diane, so we’ll always have her car when needed. The LHT would be commuter/gravel/touring rig. I still have a trailer for cargo if necessary.
I brought the Fargo back upstairs (it had been in the basement) to clean it. I don’t want to sell it, but I don’t ride it often. I did take it out on an awesome ride back in January, but mostly it just sits.
I have some soul-searching to do on this.
