I've been thinking a lot lately about adding to my bike collection (Rachelle, turn away now...)
The problem is this. It's too hard to know what to get.
1) I have friends who are pulling the trigger on single speed road bikes
2) My brother just built up a very cool fixie
3) It's cyclosross season and that looks really fun
4) I've always wanted to do it right and get a custom single speed mountain bike
It seems a little crazy to have so many bikes but it's not like I don't ride them. Adding a cross bike to the mix would allow me to do some races late in the year and maintain my fitness.
I like Elden's (Fatty's) advice on how to get approval from the wife to get a new bike. Check it out here: http://www.bikeradar.com/news/article/humour-how-to-justify-your-next-bike-12570
