My wife has got really hooked on road biking. She doesn't enjoy her mountian bike nearly as much as she used to and her comfort bike, which "was the best bike she ever ridden" now sits sadly on the rack below her Special Allez 24. Worst of all this is all my own fault. I didn't want to get her an expensive bike and then not enjoy the road bike, but she complained about the pedals so I got her some Looks, she loves them. She's now complaining about the Sora shifters (no shock) and her lack of carbon fork. She's got upgradeitis!!!
The question is do I take the entry level Specialized '02 and trade for a new bike or do I upgrade this one? She really likes the way it fits her.
