I already have two complete bikes and one project bike that will be finished soon.
My quiver of bike provides a mixture of new and old models and my modern bike supports several thousand miles a year of fitness & long distance riding.
My modern bike is a steel framed Cylocross bike that is comfortable & reliable as a century bike.
I'm finishing a 1987 Trek 400D that will have a modern Shimano 2x10 drivetrain and fenders, this will be my wet pavement bike.
I also have a 1974 Schwinn Paramount that is in as new condition. This bike is sentimental to me, I'm the original owner.
I've really wanted a bike for fast group rides. My Cyclocross bike requires a lot of effort once the pace gets above 20mph. I've been dropped by faster groups. Part of the problem is my age and level of fitness, which is good, but not great.
I've found a new Titanium frame for half price and I could build up a nice bike for $1500 to $2000.
The problem is that I really don't need another bike and should use what I have. Or... will I ride more and improve further with a good road bike?
