Getting back into riding again after an almost 10 year hiatus... I was looking over the used bike market pretty hard but realized I just didn't know enough about the current crop of bikes or the tech involved to ensure I didn't end up with a lemon. Instead, since I was buying over the winter I found a new, last-years model of a great bike that was on an extra "Black Friday/Christmas" sale.  Lots of great deals to be found during the winter if you're not to picky. Always enjoyed wrenching on my own bikes back in the day and am now slowing building up my tool kit and learning about my bike.  These days with Youtube, most of the service items can be done yourself fairly easily as long as you take it slow and have the right tools. Hope to be able to sell this well maintained bike in a year or two and this time around, be well equipped to purchase a used (year or two old) upgrade.
