Well here it is! 2009 Scott Speedster Contessa, you were all right the bike spoke to me! I spent a little over my budget, but since its a '09 I got what I think is a really great deal.
Next up shoes, pedals (though a friend gave me a set of LOOKs and may just find shoes to go with them) a computer. I have shorts and jerseys.
Exceptin' now that I'm home it's raining, so no ride for now
