I made the decision about a month or so ago to cull my collection down to 2 fully built rideable bikes, and to stop the tinkering and start riding instead of making excuses, So i built up my FSR for off roading and also my 92 GT Talera singlespeed for family jaunts and knocking about on. Got them just how i need with some quality parts then sold off all my other parts (Except for the Klein frame hanging in the garage). I'm out riding a lot more and also enjoying them a lot more. :D

I sold my car to fund bikes! I make sure I put enough effort into our relationship (no, that's not just buying flowers & chocolate & taking her out for dinner, it's listening and thinking about her nearly as much as bikes).

That was so touching!

However if I had to think about her the way I think about my bikes, I would have to see a shrink. In a moment of weakness I could see myself toping her off with air, and taking her out for a good flogging. :roll:

I still can't believe how many bikes you lot have and where you store them crazy. How much you guys spend on building bikes on average???

I keep my bikes and parts in a bohemian-ish loft conversion, where they masquerade as 'art'. Bonus is only the most exotic bits qualify. Campy chainsets do make quite GF friendly wall hangings.. :D
