So I just got a fancy new bike and upgraded the wheelset from my old fixie. I am tempted to keep it around for some hypothetical future bike that I might build someday. It also seems like it would be nice to have around in case I'm having mechanical issues and am late for work or something I could just throw on a whole new wheel. . . Not to mention that it could come in handy for trade later on.
I can't figure out if this idea is practical and resourceful or greedy and wasteful. It's wierd because I'm pretty minimalistic in every other aspect of my life. But when it comes to parting with bike stuff, I have a tough time. Opinions? Experiences? Anecdotes? Thanks!
