Around here we buy bits, build bikes, photograph them, then sell them (or break them up into bits and sell those). Rarely do we ride them, and IF we do it's around the park or maybe to the pub. To be part of the gang you're supposed to own 1 more bike than your wife is happy with.
You also have to spend 3 years building a 'keeper', with all the trick bits you can find. This will be the bike of your dreams, the one you lusted after since you were a kid and the one which you'll never sell. And then after 2 weeks you'll sell it.
So let's have no more talk of actually riding your bikes and join the team.
