Yes, and build the collection slowly..... :wink:

Finding the odd bargain on ebay that can be split to make a few ££'s is also good, as it finds the hobby. If the hobbby pays for itself effectively, then that leads to a happy relationship 8)

Share the love, well, try and involve them anyway.
My partner only has the odd ride round the village or the local woods but to be honest she hasnt been well for a while and has only just had a kidney transplant but she has been riding a bit lately. She has travel to track meets and road races as well as MTB race with me for a while so she knows the scene fairly well.
Thats why I am marrying her quite soon as if she puts up with me then she is far too good to let go :roll:
As a wedding present I got her a gold Stumpjumper 8) 8) 8) 8)

and she still wants to marry me.....................................fool :wink:

May I refer you to the Retrobikers Owners Manual.
Page One
Rule One
All bikes and parts should never be delivered to your home address. Make suitable arrangements at work or a friends address.
(Not that I have a collection...but I do go through them :roll: )
