Just been rumbled by the wife
Oh my I am in the pooo again 🙄 but doing a shed load of decorating before my crime was discovered softened the reaction I think
I bought a Cotic Soul and sold my 456 without telling the fun police but today I got caught with the evidence in the shed
I was amazed she could tell the differance between a 456 and a Soul
Perhaps the 456 being dark blue and the Soul being orange might of been a pointer.
Perhaps my SO aint so daft after all

lol, last time I did this I got the same colour and it was a month before she noticed when I was fettling in the dining room, the conversation went-Posted 6 years ago
“oh yeah how much did that cost”
next time we went to the bike shop she was looking all over for a yeti 575carlosMember

Seems to keep me out of bother quite well.
Well, yes. But I like a little mystery in my marriage,
So do I, thats why I let her cook now and again.
Don’t hide anything from her, bike stuff or not. She’s not interested really as long as I keep paying money into the bank to cover bills/living costsPosted 6 years agoMr_MojoMember
I bought a Colnago road bike last year without telling the boss, she noticed it after about 3 seconds! They don’t miss much. Tried to say it was £500 off eBay which she believed briefly then somehow found out it was really about 15 times that. She was more bothered that I never told her the truth rather than the money spent.Posted 6 years agonjee20Subscriber

I’d be more pissed off that you spent £7500 on a Colnago. Presumably money’s not really an issue if you’re spending that sort of change, so I really don’t get why you’d lie!Posted 6 years agoaracerSubscriber
I’m struggling to understand why swapping one bike for another is an issue even if you do have a SO who’s bothered about you acquiring more bikes.
this is why all your bikes should be one colour
This is why I got my 2nd unicycle in black – mrs aracer does have an issue with me getting more stuff without getting rid of old stuff. I also had very obvious bright yellow pedals on the old one which I swapped over – I suspect going from a 20″ to a 26″ wheel might be a bit of a giveaway though. Unicycles are at least easy to hide in a garage which is already full of bikes. Oh, and a complete uni is also cheaper just than the frame on anything you’re talking about (though I realised after I bought a complete one that it would have been just as cheap to build one with the custom bits I wanted 🙁 )Posted 6 years agoIanMunroMember

MRsBouy has a mighty fine attention to detail eye like you wouldn’t believe. I bought a scarf and a matching black flat cap (to wear backwards BTW) the other day and she pulled me up on it saying “that cap has an interesting detail on it, not like your other ones” I didn’t even notice the detail.. So things like this I learned early on, don’t ever hide anything.
Honesty is most definetly the best policy, never hide, be open and honest, if shes doesn’t like it, tough.Posted 6 years agoDezBSubscriber
I thought this was going to be a follow on thread to the one that got deleted Saturday morning
Ah, that thread which took place while we were OUT RIDING? How gutted to have missed that 😐
When I replaced my blue Merlin cheapie for a blue Cove Handjob, it slipped silently under the radar… or so I’m led to believe…Posted 6 years agoaracerSubscriber
If she dumps you over a bike purchase she ain’t worth having…so move on.
Dumped/not dumped aren’t the only possible states for a relationship. I’d suggest most of those at all bothered about this have moved well past that stage of a relationship (and most people making comments like yours have never had a relationship which has moved past that stage).Posted 6 years ago
