I just love staring at bikes...

Hey Everyone,
I love bikes, particularly bikes from the 80's. Road bikes, BMX, freestyle...I buy, buy, buy...hoard...stare at them like they're art on the wall. My wife isn't too happy about it. I do ride them once in a while, but for the most part it's just an addiction to having. Anyone else have the same thing going on? Thanks, and happy to be here!

80s road bikes. I like to look at em. I like to ride em.

But, hoard them? Not so much

I love to stare at the bikes as well, but I own just one. Might buy one to leave at my son's house in Washington. That way I'll have a bike to ride when I fly up there for a visit. But hoarding, I save that for my books. I have hoarded books all my life. I've got a room full of them. I'd hoard bikes if I could afford them. I never walk past a bicycle without looking all over it first. I like to see all the accessories too.
