    In which I'm basically the nicest spouse ever

    Today is my birthday - and I let my husband buy himself a "new" bike today and went with him to pick it up. He did take me out for an awesome dinner though.

    So, the bike my husband he got wasn't C&V, but we were chatting with the seller and asked him what other kinds of bikes he rides. Then the seller shows us a room full of probably 20 C&V road bikes! All high end vintage road bikes and in great condition. He said he rides a different one each week. The trip was definitely worth it for me to see such an amazing collection!

    Yes, it was Southlake.

    BG - he mostly had Italian bikes - Colnago, Alan, Bottecchia, etc. but I also saw a Miyata there and Bob Jackson. Sorry, no Bianchi.
    Hubby's new bike is an aluminum road bike with a carbon fork & carbon seatstays. Beautiful glossy black. It was made by a local builder. I don't have any pics b/c I just have my crappy iPhone 3G camera, but I'll try to convince the hubster to take some pics.
    I think I may have read Around the World in 80 Days a long time ago, not recently.

    I sometimes "hate" looking at sellers collections. Been looking for a Landshark ever since I saw a beauty in a guy's living room (I bought my chrome Katakura from him).

    All kidding aside, seeing other people's stuff can introduce you to interesting brands, build strategies, etc.
