N+1 The Gateway Drug

I've trimmed the stable to the best 8 bikes (plus custom 3 speed commuter being built). I have one slightly small new build for a coworker that changed his mind that remains to be sold. So far only scammers have answered the ad.

I thought I was recovering ... but N+1 is a gateway drug

I checked Bonktown.com and pulled the trigger twice in 5 minutes. First was for 6 Hutchinson Fusion 2 Ultra Road Tires 700x23 gray on black (got to keep my stable shod). They were $19.99 down from $60+
Next came Swobo 100% merino wool short sleeve jerseys, XL, with 3 pockets. I've bought two before for about $50. These were $19.99. I limited myself to one of each color (blue, black, orange).
If I'm ever cured I probably have the gear, bikes, tools, and parts to commute / ride for the next 6 years.

Oh well, It could be golf, or sky diving.

I got one in black. We'll have to make sure we don't wear them on the same day; that would be embarrassing.
