stopped by in LBS other day, and she was there, waiting for me. '02 (or maybe '01?) Bianchi Brava. Reynolds 520 tubeset, CroMo fork, oversized/ovalized downtube, full Sora, Bianchi alloy triple cranks, CXP-21 rims, rack braze-ons; my size and only small change over 400$! Ultimate commuter/beater/rain/randonneur/century bike and she was calling my name.. too bad I've already got one.
A threesome with twins...That would be HOT!!! :-)biknben

you are kiling me. Wife would skewer me if I bought 3 bikes in a year... just dont tell me the phone number.

I made it though with 3 new bikes this year. Tell her it is better then spending $2500 on that new carbon fiber bike that you have always wanted.
interesting that you say that...funknuggets

Then you are just out of luck.

My series of bike buys this year went like this:

Fuji Marselle with Ultegra - April
Leader 715r Frame with old Uletgra I had sitting around - June
Look 361 with the parts off the Fuji - Sept.
Rebuilding the Fuji with ebay parts- Currently

I think 3 bikes will be my max. I will have to start working on my future wife's fleet now. She only has one and I think she maybe getting jealous.
Thanks guys. Now I don't feel so bad.look271

I *only* bought 3 bikes this year, and 1 only cost $5. I thought that perhaps I had an illness. That said, I'm REALLY itching for a cross bike........
WTF? How'd that happen? That's my OLD handle ! nmKG 361

Can we please stop calling our bikes SHE!CritLover

No offense to your post, just tired of hearing bikes, cars, boats, etc referred to as she. What's the deal with that? Another example of sexist male dominated ownership discourse!

[excuse the rant, had a long week reading for my gender studies class]

Hmm, I call my Miata a "She" as well. Maybe it's just because the things we love the most are feminine? Like Mom, wife, girlfriend, etc.
