I've got her right where I want her!!!
 
So, I'm building a Specialized SL2 and all I'm waiting for is my wheelset to arrive when my wife finds the receipt for the frame.

Her: Your old bike cost how much?

Me: About $3500.

Her: And this think you bought is just the thing to hold the wheels (her words)?

Me: Yeah, it's called a frame and everything bolts to it to make a complete bike.

Her: It's not a bicycle?

Me: No, it's just the frame that hold all the parts.

Her: So, this part of a bike cost nearly as much as your whole bike? And you can't ride it yet?

Me: Yeah, that's about right.

Her: (Sighs, shakes her head, walks away wondering why she married me)

I don't think I'm going to tell her how much I paid for the crankset and wheels.

Just make sure there is something of equal value for her, or she owns half that bike!!!

The more I race, the less of a case I have for a new bike with my wife. My results continue to improve as my bike ages.

Get your wife to start riding. Mine understands the bling more now that she's racing and putting up good results.

Tough call there, but good point :)
