Mountain Biking - mini rant that has nothing to do with actual bikes
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.

it seems there are a lot of threads that go "i only have $x but i want a bike that costs $x+100" or something along those lines.
does it not occur to anyone to perhaps save up the money to get what you want?
what is with the immediate gratification/feeling of entitlement these days?
what am i missing about these situations?
Fast food society, man. Too many credit cards out there. People buying stuff on credit instead of saving up.

Plus, everyone's hoping for a deal. Then, in my case, I like to plan ahead for something I might buy 6 months down the road when I have more money. But mainly, I'm going with Ed's answer.
I love the threads that will inevitably end in someone buying a bike online that they either won't be able to to assemble, won't fit, or is not what would suit them. All of this because it's X% cheaper than just going to an LBS. What they don't realize is that X% is paid back in free advice, free repairs, and greatly increased warranty protection.
