    I got the stimulus check today...

    ...and tomorrow I'll order a custom Curtlo frameset, unless something changes my mind.

    That's exactly my plan. Aproper fitting ride will always hold it's value.

    Now I need to choose the color of the bike I'll be riding for at least 5 years.

    I'm looking at a bike purchase as well. I'm getting a little long in the tooth and I'm jealous of my wife's recumbent.

    Buy a recumbent if you want one, but 40 isn't even close to being "long in the tooth".

    Yep, there are extremely detailed plans on FALfiles.com in the survival and preparedness forum. It's almost worth registering just to look at.

    Save a bit for cut offs, knee high black socks, sandals and patchouli oil. People never seem to budget for accessories when buying a new bike.

    That's the smartest idea I've heard yet regarding Bush's little payoff for jacking our economy up so badly.

    Nah...I will have none of the above. And I know 40 really isn't old, but it's all relative to how much abuse you've put your body through, and mine isn't fond of traditional riding position.

    I noticed you don't have a red star, maybe BF.net would a group buy on red stars.

    My practice these days is buy what I will need anyway with my extra cash, because the dollar is losing value very quickly, and things will only get more expensive. If I had a lot of money left over to save, I'd buy gold. I just don't see money in the bank as a very valuable asset anymore.

    Having a wife and 2 kids the number is $1800. Which would make most people say YOWZA! sans the wife and 2 kids.

    This plan? It's pure evil. It only rewards single people. BOOOOOOOO!!!!
