. . . i still find myself checking the for sale section and ebay :roll:

all my bikes are currently sorted, with the exception of the recently acquired proflex, but i'm not gonna do anything with that until i have sorted the brake rocker problem and then it will be a temporary frame swap from another bike to see if i like it enough to get all the parts needed to build it.

so bearing in mind then that i only 'need' this one part why am i still checking ebay etc for bike brand names, shimano, suntour, magura, this list goes on.

it's an illness isn't it.

:facepalm:

Yes, yes it is. You will never truly be done for as long as you love bikes. I have come to this realisation of late and im trying to accept it.

Nah! It's not an illness. I'm sure you can stop whenever you want.
