    I really need to stay out of the LBS

    I went to 5 shops today and ended up buying one of these. It wont be here until febuary, but I have the other new bike coming on wed so I will be good until then. The S-Works id gonna get all the Dura Ace stuff off the Look that Im selling......I could have got the S-Works today in the Gerolstiener color, but I want this one.



    So Ill ride this one until then. Its gonna be my beater bike, rain bike.



    My wife said I cant go to the LBS anymore.

    Its a disease with no known cure. The best part is both bikes will come at minimal cost. Selling the Look frame and fork will pay for the S-Works, and the madone will cover a good portion of the complete bike. That is being covered by my really cool employer since it was a good year.

    U gotta let us in on this "cool employer" if they keep giving away those big fat bonus checks

    About the disease, 'ya know its going to get worse and the scary part is like what you said, there's no known cure yet.

    Could have sworn there was another thread where I asked about the extra dough for the extra bling.. and you had some really odd answer that made total financial sense.

    Well uh.. you blew it!! <-- and I KNEW IT!! Dude, the madone, the look.. your mtb's back in the day when you did that kind of riding *cough* YETI *cough* the S-works was only a matter of time.

    That bike is gonna be sweet man makes me jealous
    The nicer the bike.. the more demanding your life becomes off it..

    You don't need to stay out of the LBS. Just leave your money and credit cards at home...

    Wow, you change bikes like my ex-wife changed her shoes! Given how tall you are, I'm a bit surprised you've never just gone custom........

    BTW, is there any way to buy stock in one of those LBS's?

    At 6'3 I dont need custom. I need a taller head tube, took me a while to learn enough to know that. So far Cannondale and Specialized are the only mass produced companies to do that. Well actually the new Madone has also. I dont want to go custon, its a pain. The Tar,mac is a great fit and I will most likely ride it for atleast a year.

    What size is your new frame?

    Oh, and I never saw a price attached to your Look... Not that I could afford it or anything.

    Hey, as long as you're buying more bikes, you could pick up Hincapie's old Madone for only $10,200 on Ebay.

    I already have a 62 Madone that is too small. Those prices are a joke. I wonder if they will sell any of them.

    If I had millions of dollars lying around, such that $10,000 was essentially nothing, I might be tempted.

    But I'd rather have a Motorola Merckx!

    My wife and her control of our bank accounts is my cure! I may get the Bottechia CF frameset from the BD Xmas GB in the road forum but only because it's relatively cheap and I can pay part now and the rest when it comes in. Plus I'll swap my stuff off my current bike to that one to save $$ and to make my wife happy. Doh!

    Consider yourself lucky Specialized Sean! For now, I will live vicariously through you! haha!

    Good that you LBS does not have these Orbeas

    Good for you that you LBS does not have these Orbea Orcas

    Just joking, but for me these are momentarily the clear winners of any design contest.
