    N+1 is BikeForum shorthand for acquiring another bike. It is like the math notation, N, N+1, N+2, ...

    N+1 is the fundamental force of nature regarding bicycle acquisition. The number of bicycles you have now is "N". The number of bicycles you need is "N+1".

    Without pictures it doesn't exist. Without a description, it exists less than that! It's n+1-1n! This is the twatwaffle equation.

    and JimTjr, bluesdawg nailed it, but I shall still refer you to rule #12 http://www.velominati.com/blog/the-rules/#12

    Doing the build yourself? That does raise the excitement level a bit.

    Maybe you could string us along with a component a day.
