impulse bike purchases
Impulse buy? What me? Never! *
Apart from the Nicolai Helius frame (spotted and bought off Here within 24 hours), which meant I needed to swap my lyriks for shorter forks, leading to a new wheel set. Oh and a different seat post, which made the seat look tatty. The new seat needed to match the grips obviously…….Posted 6 years agoTiRedMember
Winter boots of ebay – they were a bargain but the cleats weren’t
Jimi wallets in sale
Computer for commuter – come on, it’s 9.5 miles each way!
Then there is Son1’s bike… and bits
And Wife’s dutch roadster that I have put more miles on today than she has since Christmas
I have been mysteriously run over by various bike shops this week. Managed to get out unscathed today though – which is an improvement.Posted 6 years agohofnarMember
I baught a barn old farm in France that I viewed once(I was on a house hunting trip though) But the house only pooped up un my one but last day viewed it on the last day rather briefly. Had to dash to get to the plane but then put an offer in whilst on a ships on its way to russia Just cos the weather is better for riding and its quite rural. Now busy draining all my savings to do it up and a year of work(day job) to make the work(renovating) mangable.Posted 6 years agosimonr2011Member
Damn good thread makes me feel better, amongst friends and also needing help….Decided to get back into biking after a good few years off and managed to go through something like 14 complete bikes or frames in less than one year 3 On one’s , Trek top fuel, a single speed road bike which I rode once, a BMX ( what the F was I thinking I am 41 and never had a BMX before, I do now) even bough the misses a trek which she nevers rides 🙁 and so many parts. The girlfriend started saying “what you doing today , bikeish things?” and she is right most of the time. But I am hitting the trails most weeks and doing some darkside road work too.
Anybody got a cure for this ?Posted 6 years agoI_AcheMember

impulse purchases… still deciding whether to get a cotic bfe after 3weeks of ‘deciding’.
Do it, I sold my lovely camera gear so I could buy a BFe. The BFe is fantastic I am having so much fun on it. Its in the top tow of hardtails that I have ridden. I’m just not sure which way round the two are at the moment.Posted 6 years ago
