    I just ordered a new CX bike and was feeling a bit guilty about it.
    Told my gf who said: do you need it?
    Um, not really.
    Do you want it?
    Oh yes.
    Well there you are then.
    Bless ‘er!

    Oh and A btw. Give STW a laugh if nothing else.

    As Nick says. You could then tell her your mate gave you one 😉

    Worts mistake I made was when I got my new Spesh Tricross. When MrsKenny queried it I described it as a sort of “do everything bike”.

    I knew it was a mistake as soon as I said it, for sure enough the reply came back “So you can get rid of the other five then I presume?”.

    My problem is I’m addicted to getting a new bike each year through the Bike2Work scheme.

    When I sold a frame recently and said to my wife I was happy with what I had, she said to me: Find yourself a new frame, the wheels, forks, all the lot you have, you know you need it.
    I dutifully obliged. New frame will arrive soon.

    With my ex husband, I used to keep quiet about new bikes til one day he did a headcount in the garage. 😳 Fortunately he couldn’t remember the colours. 😀

    I regularly kept frames and suspension forks in the back of my wardrobe. 🙄

    Personally I agree with what Convert said on page 1 of this thread. Sage words.

    Has she got a sister or a best mate?

    Film yourself doing the dirty with either/or and show your mrs the video and I guarantee she will not give you a hard time over the bike
