Budget.

by

it’s definitely a budget thing, because all of us have financial restrictions, whatever those might be; when it comes to choosing a new bicycle, there’s always a notional amount beyond which it is not wise to go, a limit either self-imposed, or imposed upon us by a partner who really can’t see why it is necessary to own more than one bicycle. just as an aside, I do have a certain sympathy with this, because it cannot be denied that the colnago has been sorely neglected since the cielo turned up (though I have told it that it is still loved as much as ever). I can only ride one at a time, review machines notwithstanding, and i figure most riders are the same, though I can see exceptions being made for those who need both road and cyclocross, and maybe mountain bikes, though i’m inclined to discount the latter option. just because I can.

An excerpt taken from the Washing machine post’s recent piece on the differences between cheaper and more expensive racing bicycle purchases. To spend more or to spend less?

A real interesting read. More here.

    Here’s what I don’t get.

    it’s okay to spend thousand of pounds on television, computer, motorised vehicle, mobile phone contract, Sky+ subscripton, designer clothing, etc. but not on a bicycle?

    no matter how expensive a bicycle is, it’s still the best investment you’ll make in your life, that is unless it end up being in the shed the first day.
