Road bikes only?
Do you hate fatties Joy?

Seriously though, I'm a poor boy compared to all those Carbon Record/Dura-Ace wonder bikes up there.

Au Contrare! Once Dorothy sees you rocket up those mountains on carbon fiber Eurotrash she's going to swoon all over again. You'll have trouble finding enough time and energy to ride the bike!

Maybe we can get a group rate.... I am feeling a little deficient with my Cannondale CAAD 3 (bone shaker) that I just put together. My wife will really divorce me if I tell her I need a new bike.

You can add my 2007 Giant TCX and IRO BFSSFG SE Fixed Gear. Neither are blingy but both are fun as heck to ride and put a significant dent in my bank account.

The year's not over though and i have one more frameset in my sights...

Do our SS conversion projects count? All the parts are new on mine except the frame, which has new paint and the handlebars which are newly wrapped. How about Luwin's SS conversion. Hot looking machine!

You could say that MErider1 is "expecting"

And just to be annoying, the Gary Fisher isn't single speed. Normal 22/32/44 crank and 9 speed cassette.
