Road bike: $4,000
Cycling Kit (clothes etc.): $750
Mountain vacation: $3,000
The climb up the mountain: Torture
Breaking the 45 mph speed limit on the descent: Priceless
The descent was smooth as silk… Previously, my best was just over 45 mph and that felt spooky on my old 5200… On the Venge, I’ll be trying for 60 tomorrow – I had a lot left.
Worth every penny.
As a side note, I do not condone riding a bicycle in an unsafe manner, especially considering one’s experience. My equipment is meticulously maintained and cared for. Even so, riding a bike at high speeds is inherently dangerous. Do so at your own risk.
