I like the way you think. If only could convince the spouse...

BTW, what's the bike, if one may be so bold as to inquire?
a Spécial C.N.C. - not at all fond of the color. Purchased out of Italy ?! C.N.C. Made a range of bikes, this one is more pedestrian than artisan. Still Super Vitus with Campagnolo ends, 26.6 seat post.
All French componentry.
‘I have another that I will call Artisan, with Italian geometry, a mostly Campagnolo.

My wife never complains as my projects aren't that expensive. I'm working on a Mexican bike boom bike right now that I bought for parts. Now if I was working on something better like the subject of this post and had to find appropriate parts, she may object. But then I'm not sure it would be more than asking why I need another bike with me honestly answering that I don't need one. I want one.

Thank you. Spécial C.N.C. is one of those brands I always keep an eye out for. Like Méral, they made nice and affordable bikes. I guess that is one reason why they got to make the second-tier bikes for Alex Singer in the seventies.
