While looking for a replacement I've been offered a really good superbike deal by my local sponsor shop- a Bianchi Oltre XR4 framset for almost half price. it's a smoking deal I'm not likely to get again and the oltre is really a bike I've lusted after. I could buy something cheaper- after all a superbike frame at half price is still a relatively big expense- but the price is really good.
Thing is, I'm also saving for a house and my wedding next year. spending on a bike isn't really going to wreck those plans, because I've been disciplined- I already have a good amount squirreled away (~$50k for a downpayment on a house and renovations, ~$12k for wedding costs, and my fiancee is chipping in a similar amount for both), but any little bit I can put away would help given these large expenses in about a year's time. This wasn't a planned expense though, so I'd have to dip into some of my spare cash and live abit lean for the next few months.
