N+1 New bike coming...
I could never figure out how some people manage to collect a bunch of expensive bikes when you can only ride one at a time???? So, I have been commuting on my Bacchetta Strada recumbent. It's a great bike for out on the road, but probably not a great bike to use as a commuter. What I have been looking for is a Bacchetta Giro 26 in a long frame, with 26" tires about 1.5" wide. Well, I found one on-line the other day, a good used one from a fellow up in Wisconsin and have made a deal. Now I'm thinking that I don't want to get rid of the Strada. Strip the racks and bags and fenders off of it, and use it for my go-faster road bike, and add the racks and bags and lights and fenders to the Giro and keep it as my Commuter/Loaded touring bike.
The wife does NOT want to hear this, can't understand why I would consider owning two expensive bikes....
Now I'm beginning to understand how people 'accumulate' a number of bikes....
