....all I can say is "...until you've found the holy grail keep trying, and then when you do, get at least a couple of them".
I'm interested in riders for specific purposes and seasons. Got out of control when I got all sorts of tyres, which lead to more
wheels, which lead to more frames, which lead to more parts, which lead to more spare parts. Highlight just buying a bike
for the crank then deciding to keep the bike, then upgrading it, then keeping it as the MTB drop-bar for the three weeks in Spring.
Now I'm on the holy grail of finding the "ultimate do it all" bike which I know is a pointless exercise and I know I won't get rid of
the front suspension bike, the mud bike, the fast hardpack bike, the snow / ice SS bike, the errand bike, the long-distance
light off-road CX, the comfy tourer.
Favorite quote on Retrobike:
Not worth the petrol to take it to the tip so it's down to the angle grinder to make it small enough to put in the wheely bin.
