Having some serious "wife hating bike trouble" lads.
I sold my bike a few months ago and forked out 10 grandish on a deposit for a house. Now we've got the house I am wanting another bike again. While we've got the weather. But my wife is giving me a really hard time! It started off as "we need a house" then, "we need a new car" and now the family holiday is booked. But when i come up with the means to get a bike without it being a problem it comes down to, "your selfish, how could you look me and the boy in the eye and know it maybe the last" and says "I can sod off back to Scotland if I want a Bike" (as I am Scottish)
Bikes are all I think about. I sneak mcn and bike trader at work. Whenever I've had to do without I'm depressed. I would commit crimes to have a bike! (not that I have) I am a bike addict. I use to ride to work on my bike and work as a bike mechanic then ride home, and look at bikes on the internet, watch bike racing on tv, and get into bed and read a bike mag. Then the next day I'd do it all again. at the weekends I'd go out on my bike. But Now the wee hour a week of pure power and thrills, keeps me sane! (I think) Its all I get.
I'm a placid nice family man 99.9% of the time until I get out on 2 wheels. I NEED MY POWER HOUR.
Emdy else struggle with the same thing?
