It's interesting you ask this question. I just had a custom bike built. Spent a ton of money on it but I find myself still riding the old bike (just used it this weekend for a metric ride) as I find it more comfortable (and maybe comforting since I rode it a long time). The new bike has a shorter wheelbase and is extremely responsive, almost scary quick. I am sortof wishing I had it built with a longer wheelbase as well.
Oh well, change is good and healthy. Goven time, I 'll probably never want to ride the old bike again.
