When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
A friend suggests I buy a used bike instead. There are a couple of Trek 1000 series bikes available on craigslist for around $700ish. But they retail lower than the Trek Pilot. WWDD?
