I've heard that before and my wife heard it from me when I bought my last 2 bikes. But sadly I think my latest purchase is my last bike.

Gave her a bit of a makeover.
New headset, got rid of the pink and blue bits.
Built her some new wheels (Bicycle Hub store hubs laved to Pacenti Forza rims, 28h rear, 24 spoke front with CX Sprint spokes).
Aerozine skewers, and top spacer.
Ceramic hub bearings, front and rear.
Considering changing out the bars to a traditional shape, but not sure.
