As it stands right now.. I got into biking about half a year ago. I'm sure some of you have noticed the months of silly questions/information leeching.. to those that didn't good job! But as it stands, my herd is at 10+ bikes, assorted framesets in the attic/barn/lean to/shed... I've got two bikes I'm tuning up for my girlfriend one's a trail bike for my place the other a commuter to replace her over sized mountain bike she currently commutes on.. I've got 4 bikes coming tomorrow of unknown specs/origins (for free and definitely not stolen bikes). My pile of spare parts has overgrown it's giant metal shelving unit (Albeit almost all of it is low end, the good stuff of course is on the bikes I ride).
Now I'm reusing my ATV track in the back field for grass racing and trying to put in some optional side stuff for climbs etc on my trail bike.
I find myself hunting every day on craigslist/ebay for my "legendary" bikes, IE a raleigh grand prix my size, or a matching Sekai 2500 GT.
Whenever I get a new bike I MUST know what it is, the year it was made, it's quality level relative to the era...
Is this level of obsession normal for cycling?
