New Road Bike
Before starting my job, meaning before leaving the bike industry, I took advantage of my employee prices to buy one last bike. This time, I upgraded my road bike and I'm really glad I did.
I bought a Cannondale Supersix. I wasn't able to get the one I wanted, so I bought a lower spec'd model and upgraded to the Red Group and sold the other components on ebay. I also sold my old bike. In the end, the new bike - new Red Group included - cost me about $500 out of pocket. Not too shabby.
I also took the Shimano wheels that came on that bike and put a cheap powertap in them and those are my training wheels (still waiting on my race wheels) and I put my Reynolds wheels on my Supersix so I now have two powermeters ready to roll so I'm getting power data on every ride.

Upgrading was a great decision. This bike is a lot stiffer than my old bike so I'm not losing as much power. It also fits better so I'm more comfortable on long rides.
Now I just need my race wheels and I'm all set for the season.
