Why can't I be loyal...........

.......... to my bike like I am to my woman?

I like to look at other women but would never cheat on her. But my bike, She would have an STD by now.

I bought my Pegoretti over a year ago. I have bought 2 bike since. I'm 99.9% sure this is the best bike for me. Yet I still shop for other frames? I ride my other 2 bikes and always feel the same when I get home. I should have ridden my Duende.. Same thing every time. Does anyone else feel this way? Do you think she gets jealous when I slide on my sidi's and I hop on my Colnago??

That depends on how you treat her. As long as she gets some love everything will be ok. Bikes understand that you can ride other bikes and not get jealous

I don't feel the desire to ride another bike. I've had offers from others offering their Orbeas, Carbon hotties but I'm actually pleased with what I have once I develope the right feel and fit for it! Guess like my woman, I've got the ride dialed in so good, don't think others could compare.....and no, she is not reading this!

Why go out for hamburger when you're getting steak at home?

My pinarellos are treated with the utmost of attention---
I give them sponge bathes-- talk regularly to both of them in a way not to offend one or the other.
each know they are special in my life ( tears) and I would never leave them nor sell them.....
I clean up their greasy poop every weekend and IF i must depart for a day or two-- I leave
them small saucers of burgandy wine.....
