I'm not messing with returning the post. The shipping expense I would have to eat, and the hassle, and the fact that it didn't cost that much all conspire to mean that I just keep it for parts and be done with it. Too bad...would have been nice on the blue EWR.
One of the fellas from Retrobike, a board I frequent, had asked me to post up on the board a close-up of the Beast of the East logo from my red Cannondale. It's a neat little detail that I'm glad is intact on the frame that I have. The bike makes a nice commuter. Reminds me of a much simpler and romantic time...called COLLEGE!
