So have you ever lusted after a bike (that you could afford) but you never got around buying.
In 1999 I really wanted a Santa Cruz Chameleon but as I didn't have the knowledge (or the tools) on how to build a bike, i never got around to buying the frame. About a year later I bought an Orange Evo2 and the Chameloen was consigned to the back of my mind. Although I occasional wonder what it would have been like?
I also really wanted a Kuwahara E.T. in 1982 and I used to stare at the one my LBS had in the window. A few months later my parents bought me a Burner and the Kuwahara was forgotten.
