Web of lies=husband of the year.
I know it is a hard equation to follow, so I will start at the beginning. So a week or so ago, Chris mentioned that one of the first Super-Flys to hit Utah County was still at Racer's Cycle Service. It was a small which may account for why it had not sold, but this happens to be my size. He decided to call to see what kind of a deal he could get as the 2009 had been announced. We talked a price beforehand and said that the asking price was still more than what we really wanted to spend or thought we should. I was a bit diappointed but totally understood. My paragon is great anyway.
Yesterday while I was getting something from the car he said that Dot was on the phone and wanted to know if she could borrow my bike for a ride tonight. She has been interested in trying 29 inch wheels for a bit. I had not planned on riding it so I said yes. Karl would pick it up from Chris around noon on his way back from work and return it on noon on his way in the next day. Sounded reasonable enough and worked great for my riding schedule.
We were supposed to drop a car off at the shop so I called Chris on my way there after yoga. He said he would need to reschedule because he just recieved a call about working late. Therefore, we would need to drive separately and he would take care of rescheduling the car appointment. Again, sounded reasonable.
Then I get the call around noon. Chris says he lied about Dot borrowing my bike. Huh? He also lied about needing to work late. I am so confused. I am trying to make sense of it all. Then he said that he lied about the price on the Super-Fly. What? But on his way to bank, he felt guilty; he could not withdraw that kind of money without talking to me first. Seriously!? I can not make this stuff up.
We discussed his plan for a while. Granted as I said before, I don't need a new bike. But a Super-Fly is well super fly. We are pretty good with money and bikes and riding are our one big splurge. Additionally, we are going to strip all the new parts off the Super-Fly and sell them on my Paragon as brand new including fork. Then I will put all of my parts on the carbon frame.
None the less, I nominate Chris for "Husband of the Year" and I am pretty sure he is going to win...hands down.MY Super-Fly
A gift of carbon fiber....
is true love.
So anyone want a lightly used small Paragon with brand-spanking new upgraded parts from a Super-Fly.
