To know how much to spend on a new bike first figure up how much your current bike cost and divide by milage then graph this vs time. determine the slope (can get difficult - mine come out as a 4nd order exp-due to winter here and I have had the bike two years) you can force a linear fit. Then take the slope (or the fastest rate) and *-1 then *price of first bike. add this number to the first bike and add 10% of any increase in net worth. And if you make cat II then forget it and either get a team bike or spend every dime you can find!
I just go by the paint job - cost is not a factor. NMterry b
