Back in the "stone age", only people who were really "serious", would spend more than $300 on a bike.
Now you have people who put in 35 mile weeks, show up on $5500 bikes.
Disposable income...........Great for bike shops........

Thanks to the advice of those here on this board, I pulled the trigger and dropped the $2000 on the slightly used (~500 miles) Look 381 CSC With full Dura Ace and Ksyrium SSCs, Easton 90 bars, Look Cx-7 pedals and Ti SLR saddle...schweet!

Gotta thank the wifer for not blowing her top, since I bought the Alu Fondy in January.

I licensed some work I had already done for the Matrix series of DVDs (soundtracks). It was "free money"- so my wife really had nothing to say about it. My bike does say that I only have ONE bike ;)

What!! you paid this much! for a bicycle??? I can go to Walmart and buy 10 bikes with this much of money. That is the reaction I usually hear from my relatives.
