Subject: RE: Sell My Road Bike?
As Rick said, and I have before as well, you always need another bike.
Interesting you are having so much trouble justifying keeping two bikes. Wonder what will happen when you have to justify #3 and 4. Oh, you say it won't happen, but it will.
Someone will have an old bike that fits you that you just can't resist turning into a fixed gear. Good for winter training, no gears to get muck and snow into. You will justify by it being free, but after $200 for wheels, another $75 for the cog, chain and chain ring, and yet another $100 for related stuff
(bar tape, tires, etc.
) not so cheap.
Then you will realize that you ride the roadie a lot, and probably should get a new one so you can leave the old one on the trainer. You will justify by noting that with trainer tires and all, the new road bike will last far longer, and you will spare the CF tri bike the bad weather.
Then you will start looking for what to do when you travel. You should certainly have some sort of folding bike.
Never ends, so whatever story you come up with now, be sure it is one that you can use a number of times.
Anything I missed Rick?
