I counted nine, but I seem to recall that you have more than that...
Very nice. You're either going to get some of the rest of us in trouble or you're going to serve as cover.

Good find.

Do you get more square footage for your $ in Winchester? Because my house in Vienna is teeny tiny and there is no way we could house a fleet like that. Although my husband suggested we build another garage out back just for the bikes, bless his heart (we already have one building in the backyard plus the shed for garden tools, so I don't think that would go over well with the neighbors).

I did when we bought the house, which was in 1999. 4200 sq feet/4br/3ba 2 car garage and we paid $157k for it. County now claims it's worth $460k.. at least that's what they're taxing me on it now. It was however bought from a builder that was going under and we had to dump another $30k into it immediately to finish it.

Times have changed though, and Winchester has become more of a bedroom community to DC and prices went up accordingly and haven't seemed to come down. LOTS of foreclosures though. Next door neighbors just gave up theirs, which means houses on each side of me have been foreclosed on.

When we were looking comparable houses in Fairfax area were $5-600k which is why I decided to eat the commute.

How in the hell did I miss that? Or was that the one originally posted for $500 that I figured had to be stolen... not that I was following CL like I do almost every day. Great find.

No powertap. I've pretty much given that bike to the son these days since after two shoulder surgeries I have issues getting into enough of a tuck or even down on the aerobars without agony. He's managed to make his old man look like a garden slug riding it... He qualified for USAT Team USA in short course duathalon on it and runs 28-30mph bike splits so I let him have at it. And yeah, it's pretty brutal in a crosswind, but my god does it fly if it's not windy.

The one that posted for $500 was a BMC Virus 2.0 hardtail, and that one was waaaaaay sketchy. That guy was selling that one and didn't know anything about it and I steered way clear. This one popped up for $1k, and then went to $700 a day later so I lowballed him. Had all the paperwork where he bought it from Competitive Cyclist this time last year for $1500 on closeout. MSRP is close to $3k.. Doesn't have a blemish on it, looks like it was ridden once or twice on a dusty road.
