Hi all,

New to this...

After recently seeing an old Marin Bear valley in my town that I remembered as a kid I started to 'skim' eBay.... :facepalm:

Two months later, I'm three bikes in and constantly buying parts...(mainly ones I don't need!!)

Is there any cure or is this terminal?? :D

I'll try to post some pictures when I'm happy with the specs!

It's hard to hide all these packages!

If I'm not divorced I'll get them finished :)

In 3 months I have gone from 1 new school bike to 3 old skool ones, plus 4 sets of rockshox judy forks in all variations......

trying to relive ones youth is a downward spiral.......

Good luck, this site is full of help and advice from people all in the same boat.... but its like going to an AA meeting held in the local pub :facepalm:

We sound on a similar path! :)

All I can say is at least is cheaper than cars... And better than gambling!

Plus it keeps you fit!

Hi all, I've been an addict for about 22 years but recently fell off the wagon and spent 140 quid on a ringle hub and syncros cranks. The wife is in the hormonal stage of pregnancy and my addiction put me on the couch last night when these packages started showing up. Thankfully she hasnt seen the tioga disk drive as that went to the wheel builder.

I think I need rehab.

Jokes aside I think many of us on here feel your pain. ;)

Not having your own money, and everything being in joint account helps, I find
