DG or George, who will buy the next new bike?

The office pool is now open. Pick a week and your candidate, Digital Gee or George. Which one will buy a new bike next? They both have Specialized Roubaix's now. They seem to be happy. But they have histories, boy do they have histories, of buying new bikes.

Will either be able to go another 12-18 months without buying another bike?

I have a crystal ball and I see a Rivendell in it.

Any and all Rivendells which are given away in the forum come directly to me!
