So i find myself scanning this site at 5.20ish every morning before i start work and at numerous other times throughout the day, to the point where my boss cracks up at me 'are you looking at those bloody bikes again?'. I'm looking for that one bike/frame/component that i must have. i'm unsure as to what that bike/frame/component may be. its something of superb build quality possibly quite exotic and i need it. is this an addiction?

Haggis, you're not the only one. I could have typed those very words myself.

I think an interesting question this brings up, is would you be as interested / maniacal about collecting / restoring VRC bikes and parts without this website?

Me? Probably not.

Yes it is :lol: but worse than that is the fact it reminds you of all those bits you'd always wanted but forgotten about :lol:

I only recently joined and its terrible :shock: I spend hours looking through the readers rides section drooling over things I'd forgotten existed :D

I hadn't seen one for ages and forgotten all about them :shock: but now I have to get a Middleburn chainset :D maybe two :lol:
