You guys are the only ones I can share this with...

I dream of retro bikes now.

Last night, I dreamt that I found an old workshop that was being converted into another business and some old bikes were being cleared out.
I went to look further and there were some unsold bikes from the late eighties.
I couldn't believe it... there were early Deore XT prototypes... stems... seats... bars and funny brakes.
I poured over them with total enthusiasm and concentration, confused at how I'd never seen them before.

Can you imagine the response when I woke at 7am to discuss with my girlfriend!! White coats and help was mentioned among other things, as my hobby has gone too far.

Am I alone?
