I don't know why I do this to myself, but I test rode another bike last week, and I can not get it off my mind. It is a 2008 Kona Jake that one of the LBS's has marked down. I guess that I really don't NEED the bike, but I really WANT it.. I keep rationalizing why I should get it. Then I try to tell myself that I can't afford it, but then I think of ways I might be able to swing getting it again. The LBS is not making it easier either, they have a lay away program that they said they would extend the normal 90 day period out as long as I kept paying. So, talk me into or out of this bike.
