I don't know what to do. I really want a cross-type bike (see http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...349
), but I simply don't have the cash (well, right now I can't even buy food, but I've got a student loan on the way :) ). I'm selling my guitar (Parker P38, anyone interested?), but I really don't want to sell any of my good bikes. I have an Orbea road bike that will donate most of the parts for the 'crosser, so that's gotta stay, for the moment at least, and a Fly BMX what I absolutely love but hardly ever ride (I stripped it down and put the parts on a cheap frame to take to uni). I don't want to quit BMX to the extent of not having a decent bike, but at the same time I feel so badly towards it right now that I have no interest in actually riding. I know my interest will return sooner or later, and if I sell I'll definately regret it later.
Being at uni I can't really get a job that'll pay for it, but I'm seriously considering quitting, so that would free up a lot of time. I suppose the obvious thing to do is just wait and save up as much as I need (enough for a full Campy groupset too :) ), but I suffer from a serious case of Iwantitnow syndrome. It's not just vanity though, I feel as if this winter will go to waste without a bike I feel comfortable riding in winter conditions.
What would you do - sell things you know you'll want later or save up and waste time?
