The other big change in my life was being completely unwilling to share the road with drivers that were too busy looking at their phones to not kill me. 20'-30' gap jumps? Sure! 10-15' drops at speed? Sure. Riding a road bike on a public road with cars? Nope.Yeah you would've. Do yourself a favor, don't look at what they're asking for the Vamoots currently at the Pro's Closet. There are a few on eBay that are closer to what you sold yours for.
Personally, I buy such esoteric stuff, I can't even figure resale in to it because I assume nobody would ever want it.
