Maybe you just have what you need or want.

I let a 531-framed Trek -- in my size and well-equipped -- sit on the CL for a couple of weeks not too long ago, priced below $200. Don't get me wrong, I looked at it more than a few times and imagined a couple of possible builds, but that was enough. At this point unless it's something truly special I don't need to snap it up like I once did... and my definition of "truly special" has evolved over the past few years.

So yeah. There may be something wrong with you, but I don't think it's related to not bringing that bike home.
A race bike in any era is a highly personal choice that at its "best" balances the requirements of fit, weight, handling, durability and cost tempered by the willingness to toss it and oneself down the pavement at considerable speed. ~Bandera
