Yeah, this is more or less my thinking as well, but just wanted to kinda 
double-check on it to know what I'm up against.

I put enough dings and dents into my 10-year-old Sam Hillborne that I'm 
ready to move on to something else. Initially I'd thought just get another 
Sam, but I'm looking at the Roadini and it really looks exactly like the 
road bike of my dreams. So I am considering it carefully (in part because 
it's a lot cheaper than a new Sam). I would, likely, eventually get a 
second bike, something more trail/dirt oriented. But I also like to be able 
to have the option for taking any bike I ride onto rougher terrain if/when 

Anyway, looking at all the options. And it looks like now is the time to 
get while the gettin's good, so to speak, given that latest missive about 
cash flow problems. I know it's going to be one of the two frames, so I 
went ahead and bought $300 in gift cards, toward the "hail mary" effort. 
Hope it helps. Fingers crossed.
