How do you convince your loved ones you need another bike?

I have just spent the past few weeks specing (and paying!) for my Bianchi XL EV2, then learn thanks to the "Hot Deal" board that a Merckx Titanium frame can be had for as little as US$900 - even when converting to Pacific Pesos aka Australian Dollars, this is reasonable!

I have already mentally spec'd this bike...

What do I tell those supposed loved ones, who should support me on everything I do, that I need this bike?

ride the Bianchi until it wears out and then you can tell your loved ones you need a new bike. There are going to be many "Hot Deals". You already made a decision so start enjoying a perfectly good frame.

Your wife will reply that she has the same problem...with men. Just after marrying you, she had second thoughts and began lusting after another. But, in the end she stuck with you. (I might add, without even test-riding the alternative).

You do not want your XLV2 to feel the same way now, don't you?
