Don't fight it.

You must, and that's all there is to it.

so can someone tell me why I MUST have a new bike?
You live, you breathe, you must have a new bike, end of story..

Was that Descartes? Kant? Wittgenstein? If it wasn't, it must have been Aristotle..
 
Ok, this fab bike you already have. What is it? From the bill ( :?: ) the new one sounds pretty similar. I work on the theory that a new bike should be either hugely different or hugely better. Which is yours?

i have a 2004 Trek 5500 with Mavic ES wheels and Dura ace kit.

I'm looking at either a new Trek 6.5 or a Colnago Extream power with record kit

both fantastic bikes and just because I like them seems to be why i NEED a new ride!

The Colnago Extreme is on another level as far as I'm concerned so that would be the one for me, but why reduce the quality by fitting Camp........ something or other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Because it is a bike not a fishing rod?

With experience, you get to understand the subtlties between different types of bikes which therefore warrants a different one - that sort of discussion gets completely lost on my wife when I try to justify another acquisition. As to believing that a Trek is the pinnacle of bicycle lust - believe me, you've got a long way to go! Unless of course you just want to be seen as another sheep following the flock?
