Reasons I don't need a new bike?
Ok, so despite having ridden only half a dozen times in the last year I’m worryingly close to convincing myself that I need a new bike (frame and forks at least) and that it will solve my lack of riding problem (ignoring the new born baby, work pressures etc).
My current proper bike is an Intense Tracer VP with Lyrik RC2DH’s on it, XT, Avid Elixir carbons, hope pro 11 /Stan’s flow, Thomson finishing kit.
As such I’m really struggling to see how anything new and shiny will be significantly better. I’m also worried that anything new and shiny would rapidly turn into mud caked and half abandoned in the garage (like the tracer is)
Help me, tell me to stop being stupid , lose a stone and get out and ride

My most recent bike purchase hasn’t had much effect on my riding frequency. I thought it would, but no. I think it will do in the summer, and for now I’m sticking with the turbo and a weekend ride as and when.
My biggest issue is the 6″ deep mud and filth everywhere around my way at the moment, and the fact that bikes are difficult to clean at home for me.
Your current bike sounds great. Stop being stupid, Lose a stone and get out and ride.Posted 4 years ago
