Goodbye, Old Paint

Bought my used Merckx Bound in 2007 from a fellow in Porto Sant'Elpidio, Le Marche.  It was carbon, 10-speed Chorus, very posh for me.  I was just getting over a long illness and this bike got me going places and accomplishing feats I would never have dreamed of.  More than a bike for me, it was therapist, rehab department, up to every challenge, and never saying no, you can't do that.  But there's no room left in the stable now and the old girl has to go to a new owner.  So long, faithful companion. 


  1. It's always hard saying goodbye to a bike but this sounds like an specially difficult one to part with..... hopefully it goes to someone who appreciates it as much as you!
