ok since joining retrobike, i have been well and truly bitten by the retro bug.
after restoring my rc100 i thought that would be it. then various other things bike related have come and gone,
then came the dolomite attitude for a short spell, only to be sold then fund my merlin build,
then along come some lovely cook bros cranks,
and to top it off i have just bought a lovely dynatech decade frame with the very nice trimnel fork.
where will it all end ?
i really need to stop spending money i don't have.
i know i am not on my own, but has anyone actually manged to settle on a nice couple of bikes and just be happy.

or am i doomed to spend my future trawling retrobike for tempting retro crack.

i am a retro bike addict it has been 3 days since my last purchase.

I think you may need to take a bit of time off the forum.

I did, and it did me a lot of favours.

They are only old bikes after all.

what helped me was a lack of space!

since leaving home and moving back into my parents (expensive split) i have to be sensible....though i have owned some nice bikes and kit :wink: what you are experiencing is normal :lol:
