    Bike disease

    I am going crazy. I have too many bikes, and i always want to change something or buy a new.

    Last week i bought a new street frame because "a friend offered me a frame with newer geo for a very cheap price"

    The week before that i finished shopping my rigid 29er bike. Just waiting to get the stuff and put it together.

    This week i have fallen in love with a road frame.. "my current frame is a little too big? my current seatpost is too short for my new frame, My current handlebar have bad geo"
    Pow, and now i have a shopping cart on 1400USD waiting for my approval.

    I broke my AM bike this summer, and i'm soon getting my replacement frame.. I have bought some threats for that bike aswell.. Some new cogs, kasettes and rims.. Maybe even some spokes if the old does'nt fit..

    I have ordered a new frame some time ago for my trials bike, which should be produced soon.

    Puh, im using all my money on bikes.. Am i mental ill?

    Not if you ride them and enjoy them. Money well spent, IMO.

    I don't keep more than 3 bikes at any given time...I have, however, had many bikes that I have had and sold to get newer bikes. I just sold my beloved AS-X to get a 2014 Camber 29er...sad to see the Yeti go, was a great bike, just too much bike for where I live and wanted something I would ride more.

    Bike disease is not fatal - unless you get crazy enough to ride a Penny Farthing on the Portal Trail in Moab - then you probably need to get checked out.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    My goal this season is to compete in atleast one race with every bike.
    Early in the season: A hillclimb race with my Road bike
    Middle of the season: A MTB race on my Rigid 29er
    Late in the season: A gravel race on my Rigid 29er

    In between, when possible, i will compete in as many as possible Enduro and Trials competitions ( As these are less planned, and less important than the big three mentioned before)

    Raider: Now im lookin after a Penny farthing.. Do they deliver front wheels for these?? :O 6in travel back and front?

    2013 Trek Cobia- 29er serious mountain bike
    2015 Raleigh Misceo- Gravel bike
    2013 Trek 3700 Disk- play mountain bike
