+1. My one and only ride is an '84 Peugeot PH10 that I bought new. It has served me well and continues to do so today. It looks and runs as good as it did on day one. I'm not lusting for a new bike of any kind. I'm not planning on retiring my ol' gal any time soon. I'm quite certain she'll out last me.

the perfecto for me would mean configuring the pinion gearbox setup to my existing bicycle with the duotrap S integrated followed by a fresh OEM like paint/decal redo.

Nothing more nothing less.

I have too many bikes now. I know its true because my wife told me so. She doesn't know that I have one eye looking for a 60s Schwinn Paramount. I was using the other eye to look for a gold Peugeot, till I found one last month. Now I do have too many bikes.

Tern Surge Uno. I think there is a law somewhere which prohibits old men above 50 riding fixies and doing skid-slides.

Yeah, I didn't mean to deny or deflect, just to say that I was overwhelmed when my materialistic habits came late (in college) and strong and focus on bikes.

Since you asked. I am lusting for the new 2019 Trek Madone SLR Etap. Only $12,300. I will have one after I win the lottery

Firefly All-Road
Moots Routt 45 (to build up as a Comooter, yuck yuck yuck) and a Mooto X RSL or maybe a Farwell.
Anything by Chris Bishop
Riese and Müller Supercharger Rohloff E-14 HS
Co-Motion Divide (or maybe just an Americano) and of course a Java Tandem because I want a tandem and wider is better.
Independent Fabrications Ti Crown Jewel with track ends and maybe a Ti Deluxe
Brompton SuperLight (the Ti model)

These are my main modern lusts but I have others. You might notice a slight pattern of titanium being there a lot because I love it and if I had my choice all my bikes would be Ti and some Steel and nothing else. (I have two aluminum bikes and would be happy to replace them with a ti or even steel version).

Volagi Viaje. If anyone knows where I can get a 60cm, frame or complete, PM me. Must be clean and straight (no crashes), any color. Even better would be the Viaje Ti (gotta be a 60cm), but I know unicorns don't exist.

As much as I always love and lust over classic randonneurs, the one bike I’ve lusted after so hard ever since I first saw it on the radavist would be the Bishop ‘butterfly wing’ track bike. This thing is just a whole new level of perfection. It is of course a pointless lust, because it’s a custom build. There aren’t any factory bikes that even remotely interest me. Canyon, as a brand looks the most interesting, but I neither want or need a full carbon road bike.

Guys, maybe I should worry. My wife keeps encouraging me to get another Colnago, the C64.

What the heck is she up to?
