Don’t get a road bike case…

Well, it was bound to happen. My over enthusiasm got the best of me yesterday. I went and bought a road bike case. My friend said “I think I’ll just rent a bike in Seattle instead.” After researching the bikes they have available for rent, it would cost me $65 to rent for a day when it would cost me at least $60 to ship round trip. But the question is… “why would I want to send my $3,500 bike anywhere?” I think I’d rather keep it at home and not have to stress about getting it packed properly, shipped undamaged, etc. Sigh, does anyone want a road bike case? It’s BIIIIG too. Crap. I can see myself using it if I ever consider doing any international rides/races. Guess I’ll keep it and see how it goes this year. Still too early to tell where I’ll end up.
