Hello Barney, dont worry you are not alone.
This is a really strange site the way it feeds off itself and its members with a steady stream entering and leaving.
I believe its the work of the devil, well john really, but the devils working through him. Either way John and the devil are in cahoots, thats if they are not the same being
Or maybe they are like the drug dealers only pushing retrobike instead, you know the thing...' go on have this frame for a tenner, they were great in the day', they dont tell you you will have to sell your soul to get that magic crankset that was the must have thing, or the £100 pair of umma gummas, bang! before you know it they have you
Soon you'll be selling your kids for that NOS Ti skewer that weighs half a gram less than the others.
Its all down hill and then, when you got nothing left and the devil knows what you want he comes and offers you that.. carbon/Ti S Works or Yo Eddy or whatever it is you lust after and then the Devil has you cause it only costs your soul. Trouble is he has your soul forever but I dont know how long the S works will last and thats when it turns to hell. Sitting for eternity unable to ride cause your S Works is broken.
Thats just my opinion, just my take on it.
Have you ever seen John and the devil in the same room?
I thought not.
Beware what you lust after.
Carlsberg dont build Singlespeeds but if they did.......they would probably look just like mine.
I've spent half my life on bikes.........the other half I wasted
