I think you skewed this towards the triathlon bike option.

Kovas said...

Being able to afford all 3: Priceless.

Michael said...

Hmmmm....I think you better go with option 2.

Jennifer said...

Number 1 for me. Not even a choice!

A P4? See you more as a Shiv man!

Hookers now take credit cards? wow

misszippy said...

Tough choices there!

Pretend this is real said...

Cervelo it is! Way to rationalize. ;)

Can you use the Harley in a WTU event? There are tri bikes that cost less.....just sayin'

I sold my Harley (3rd one), earlier this year, after 20 years.But I'll get another one.

I sold my tri bike, and opted for an expensive road bike. I likely won't get another one.
Although if I did, I think it would be a Felt or Cannondale.

I gave up blow in the 80's as well as hooking. I always did more than I sold (of both).

Love Kovas's comment!

Funny-
But I never knew tri was a mid life crisis kind of thing.
After 30 years of it I guess it's just become my lifestyle. No MLC needed!

Kovas must A) be having a serious mid-life crisis and B) swindling money from his government job;)

I'm not trying to tell you what to do, but I'd go with #1 or #2...that #3 might just leave you feelin' like crap and with the clap

There's an inverse relationship with Harley value and coolness. The more tricked-out bike seems to usually have a rider that is trying too hard to look cool. But when you see a great, basic Harley, you find a person that just loves riding.

(entering the danger here) I sometimes wonder if it's not the same for bicycles. Is there something amiss if we can't be happy on a basic LBS-quality bike under $1,000?

Chris K said...

I wonder what Mary thinks of this post. I'd still go for #3 myself.

What did you decide?

Colleen said...

Which will give you the most bang for your buck? :)
