    So I said to work colleague, I want another year or so out of my bike then I’m going to get a TCR SL. He said well you may as well apply for a racing license then because you don’t need a bike like that.
    I often see overweight mamils on Penerellos but I don’t have a problem with that.

    Buy whatever bike you want, but not a Specialized obviously.

  6. He’s not cool enough, I agree.

    Buy what you want. The more expensive the better. Always worth paying a little extra to annoy others.

    I bet the self same nodder that gave you that advice would jump at the chance of a Ferrari, even though he's not a racer.

    Your mate would p1ss himself if he saw me on my Cervelo R5........and it wouldn’t bother me one jot

    (I’m 61, overweight, look stupid in Lycra, wheeze when riding up anything steeper than a 5% incline, average 13 mph and just love cycling).

    Get your new bike and have fun.

    We are all different so you ride what you want its not all about hurtling along at full speed , slow down and see the things others don't

    Sounds like it yes, if you get nasty comments about a purchase then it usually is.
    I once went on a nice holiday to New York and then to Boston and I got a few nasty comments from work people. They were saying things like its good to tell you dont have a mortgage/kids/husband whatever.
    It was jealousy pure and simple.
    Get what you want its your money.

    Must have more money than sense is a line many on this forum use. Which to me often smacks of jealousy.
