From Felt to Wilier. American-German to Italian.
Kind of like switching families. As much as I enjoyed my ride with my Felt, I’m ready to try something new. Makes me nervous though. Big time nerve wracking! Like the beginning of any new relationship, I’m questioning my move:
Will I be fond of it? I mean fall head over hills in love with it? Will it fit my kind of riding? How aggressive will it be? Comfortable? Will I be good enough for it? Do I deserve it? How long will our passion last? Can I afford it? And finally, will my back hurt as much while riding?
Even if I know it’s for the best, I still feel insecurities taking over the excitement.
I’ve always been that way. For me, it’s actually a positive state of mind! I like to process information in a very structural way:
- 1- I’m always sceptical at first (Didn’t say pessimist). Unless you win my heart, I’m a no!
- 2- Give me the facts, I need to gather the information and analyse the pros and cons. And don’t rush me…
- 3- After, I let my feelings come into play. By then, I know what’s right for me.
- 4- At last, decision time: once I made up my mind and there is no way back. No doubt. No regrets.
So now, I still have one day to analyse the Izoard (not the Mortirolo anymore). The order will take place on Thursday. Until then, I’ll be juggling through the 4 steps.
Good news, I’m already done with the first three so it’s all up to my guts…
Good vibes, Izzy belongs to me! Yep, already got a nickname!
