I have not bought a new bike for many years. I have bought a handful of used bikes, and bought some budget frames and built myself 'new' bikes from old parts, but no new bikes. But I have a mountain bike that would cost me $3000 to replace.

My response when people ask and are surprised at the value of my bike is, "did you know that some people spend over thirty thousand dollars...
... on a car!"
