Hi Folks -
OK, so today a friend of mine and I went to the local REI to gather things for an upcoming trip. While there, they announced that there was a clearance sale in the back...so off we went. Amongst some other stuff, I found a used Novara Randonee, probably 1 year old I'd guess, for $400. It was the proper size for me. I actually started considering buying it, because I thought it was a good deal.
Now - mind you - I already have five bikes: A touring bike, a road bike (which I haven't had for a month, yet), a single speed, a mountain bike and project bike (converting to FG). This would merely be a redundant addition to the stable, nothing that I was wanting or needing...but there I was, actually thinking about buying it!
I walked out, thinking "Ye gods! This crack habit is stronger than I had originally suspected!" Mind you, this is probably how I went from one bike to five in 12 mos time. Funny how it's only after it's waaaay to late when you realize that you might have a "problem"
