|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.|

|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.|

|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........|

|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.
