I admit I've been lusting over a Rivendell Hilbourne for the last several weeks. The problem is that I can't really justify the absolute need at present. I am perfectly happy with my Synapse for training, organized rides, etc. What I'm thinking about using the Riv for would be some light touring, commuting and possibly some brevets next year.
Am I losing my mind? I keep questioning my sanity, I think largely because of the cost, although money really isn't a problem. Should I just pull the trigger? I appreciate everyone's input, but I think all is lost already. the Rivendell allure is too strong of an attraction!
