I haven't made a big splash and changed up the stable in quite a while, and to top it off, I seem to only reach for the Monocog29er and the Turner 5-Spot when I ride and not the vintage steeds! I even find it hard to participate and hold interest in some of the really great recent build threads I've seen here on the board. I try to talk the game like I really dig it, but I know I'm missing the passion right now for the old and funky.
So after 23 years of loving rigid rigs and thumbshifters, am I losing my edge?
I am contemplating selling 8 of the 12 bikes I own, and a good compliment of the retro parts. I'm thinking I may get myself on a waiting list for something splashy and custom and modern. I could probably buy it and the parts to build it and maybe even a small house with all the crap I have to sell if I do go through with the purge. If I blow it all out will I kill myself with a spoon three months from now when I realize what I've done? Some of this crap is nearly irreplaceable.
The collection just seems like it's in my way and maybe even keeping me from riding and enjoying cycling.
It has been very rainy here in FLA these last few weeks. Maybe I need a vitamin D shot or something!
Anyone ever feel like this? Suggestions?
