I went back to cycling and had a cheap bike, made a great one and quit.

I can't explain exactly why I quit.
The new bike, carbon fiber and Shimano Dura Ace..It was too damn twitchy. and I had two experiences in the first two rides to stop me for good.
First was a couple of kids trying to steal it.
Second was nearly being run over by a 18 wheel semi alondside, passing me.
I parked it. And really totally stopped riding.
I SHOULD have just kept that cheap bike I LIKED.
