Keep CC or get a Cheap 1x1?
Here is my dilemma. I found a heck of a deal on Rootbeer Vaya on CL, barely ridden, for $850 about a year ago. It replaced my Mist Grey CC as my all around "road" bike. The CC has been sitting in my garage, it is in great shape. I was thinking of converting it to a SS to use as a commuter/beach beater. Trader Joe's is less than a mile, the beach is about a mile, and work is about two miles. Plus grab some breakfast/lunch on the weekends. I don't have to worry about it at work and probably not much at TJs, but at the beach . . . I don't really like cruisers.
The problem is that the CC is n really good shape and I was afraid it would be prone to theft. So, I was thinking of selling and picking up an older 1x1 that is more beatup and less of a temptation to thieves. I figure the CC would get about $650 and I could get a cheaper 1x1 and use the extra cash for racks/basket/tweaks. Or if I keep the CC spend a couple of hundred bucks converting it to a SS and worry about thieves.
