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.

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?
I would rather have 5 mountain bikes and 1 road bike instead of completely different bikes.
2013 Trek Cobia- 29er
2015 Raleigh Misceo- Gravel bike
2013 Trek 3700 Disk- 26er
1994 Cannondale R300- narrow tire roadie
