Bit of a quandry here:
I'm very happy with the hardtail MTB, so that's safe.
And the BMX.
Have a couple of other bikes:
a) 1996 Trek 1400 roadie: hideously stiff, uncomfortable and overgeared, but good fun.
b) My lovely old steel Rockhopper which has Kona P2's/rack/a nice Brooks on it and gets used as a rigid MTB, tourer and commuter.
Might now have the option of Bike 2 Work, so:
Get a lightweight carbon roadie and demote the Trek to winter use/sell it.
Get a CX/Disc type bike and flog both the Trek and the Rockhopper to raise a bit of cash (not much though).
Heart says get the carbon roadie. They're all modern and flash and I get to keep the Rockhopper, which still does everything a crosser can.
Head says don't be daft, you're an ageing fat knacker who'll be better off with a sensible disc crosser, which would fulfil the roadie/tourer/commuter/rigid role and no one really needs five bikes.
What would you do?
And yes, I am thoroughly ashamed of myself for asking such a question, but I really have thought myself into a corner on this one.
