Would this be too daft for words...?

I've had a hardtail Specialized Hardrock for years, and just for a bit of variety and speed I bought a Ridegeback T1 in January. It's basically a roadie with flat bars.

Today I saw a Giant SCR3 in the LBS. I tried it for size, it felt great and then it looked at me with those big puppy eyes... 'buy me, buy me' it said, pleading.

Would it be bonkers to buy another bike?

Please say yes :?

    yes of course it is go for it (convert the flat bar to singlespeed/fixed as a commuter as an excuse)

    You only live once. If you'll get the use out of all these bikes then go out and buy the Giant. I'm in the same sort of boat. Got my Langster and a Trek folder but want to cover all the bases with an MTB for getting down and dirty.

    So sorry, my answer is NO!!

    Health and fitness budget isn't it? of course it's all right.

    I'd go for something more focussed though given what you already have - try a TCR composite.

    Buy it. Everyone knows that the correct number of bikes to own is n+1

    n being the number of bikes you own at the moment. :D
