I currently own 2 fixed gear bikes and a mountain bike. I am now suddenly finding a desire to have a roadbike with gears---mostly to do group rides. I can get a great deal on a Trek 1500 and can use my tax refund to fund the purchase. My problem is that I can't justify owning 4 different bike, esp. when two of them basically serve the same function. Should I blow the dough on the roadbike? If I do, will my skin suddenly molt and be replaced with lycra? Will I start weighing myself every morning and shaving my legs?WIll I feel compelled to buy a beamer with a roof rack to transport my new ride? If I do morph into a roadie, which fixie do I get rid of? My Pista is precious b/c it was my first and is amazingly fast. My IROSE holds a special place in my heart because I selected all the components and put most of it together, and is a better "cruising" ride? The torture! Will I even ride fixed anymore if a jump into roadie world?
