    I spend too much time looking at bikes/parts on the internet.

    Whenever I'm sitting at home and kinda bored, I'll surf around the internet and look for good deals on components, or look at bikes and try to decide what I want to buy when I've got a bit more money. Currently, I want to get one of these, but I might change my mind by the time I have $3000 to spend on it. I'll probably never save $3000 anyway, I'll keep blowing it in small chunks on parts and upgrades for my current bike.

    I do too. Except it's my birthday coming up.
    (If I'd have 3000 bucks to spend on a bike I'd go with a Kona Coiler Deelux).

    Heh.. doing that actually saved me a chunk of money recently. I had a RockShox Reba Team with PopLoc (ok, not exactly a _dream_ fork, but nice) in my shopping cart at Jenson, left over from some 'fantasy shopping'. Anyway, a few days later, they jacked the price up by $150, but because the item was already in my cart, I was able to check out at the old price, plus the 10% discount they had at the time.

    That's exactly how I feel. It's presently my favourite type of "pr0n". The PricePoint catalogue is presently my favourite bathroom reading.
