There has to somebody else that does this. I love going to various online bike shops(performance,nashbar,excelsports,etc.etc.) pretending like I have a certain amount of money to spend, say 250 dollars, and shopping for shoes, clipless pedals,saddles,shorts, the whole nine yards. As I pretend to shop I add stuff I "need" or bargains to my shooping cart. I wonder if the shops can tell I'm doing this? And if so I wonder if it is annoying? But geez, if I didn't do that the internet wouldn't be so dang fun!!! :thumbup: Besides Bikeforums of course.

Ba-Dg-Er,

I just realized that you are from Flagstaff. I briefly lived there a couple years back. I had a great time while I was there. A lot of biking oppurtunities with the National Forest. Say hi to the Grand Canyon for me.

Cyber-cyclery places should like you to play with their merchandise options. Some day, you will just decide to push the the send button, and they make a sale.

I find it shocking that more people have not posted in here acknowledging their addiction to "cyber-shopping"
