The Money Pit
I had a feeling that building up the Moto could end up being a bad idea. My 'free' frame and 'free' SRAM parts turned into a few bucks to ship the frame and a few bucks to buy cables plus $100 to build up the bike. Next change order ... I got the call on Saturday that one of the SRAM Force shifters was not working. At $500 a pair, the shop was 'doing me a favor' by selling me a single shifter for $190. And, of course, I dropped off all my old parts at the Hippy Bike Co-Op on Friday because Amy wanted me to get my crap out of the garage. Full retail, baby.
This SRAM Force crap better be sweet because my free upgrade just passed the $300 mark. Grumble.
