    Time to try the road

    My son has been begging for a road bike now for a few months ever since he went a ride on the back o the tandem with dad and the boys. Looking around some local shops and searching eBay a lot I learned two things. New bikes Small enough are a minimum of $750 for anything remotely decent. Good used bikes were around 1000 or were fairly beat up with a mix of old worn out parts. So after a lot of searching I found a 41cm carbon Merckx for sale for 600. With some very careful searching, a few lucky eBay auctions and some o my old parts we should be around $1300. Here is the first pic, more to come as more parts show up in the mail
