    bike: a eulogy

    Bike, you were a good bike. You were my first 'real' mountain bike that I got to call my own. You were the first bike I ever completely took apart and got back together. When I got you 2 & 1/2 years ago, I actually wasn't sure about you after our first ride. But the more I got to know you, the more you showed me what you were capable of. With time, bike, you showed me that you were actually far more capable than I. And so it comes with great sadness, bike, that I must say good-bye. It's been nice riding you. I'm sorry I cracked you. RIP bike.

    Life goes on. With each day, the pain softens a bit. Perhaps joining a therapy group will help you heal faster. Some of them start their meetings at local trail heads.
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    Don't worry. You, too, will get over it. Just as I did a few years ago...

    I kinda agree with Gasp4Air. The pain does soften but, although you will find another, you never forget your first one.

    I have never regretted breaking a bike. The 3 bikes I have broke have been upgraded to better bikes. The newer low bottom bracket, short stem, wide bars, slack bikes are way more fun to ride.
