Somebody stop me, please! I have a new addiction-habit-obsession. I don't know why it took me so long, but I just can't stop obsessing over bikes and bike parts. I'm on Ebay, Craigslist, and other various websites looking to build the perfect bike with the best deals. I don't know if it's about the treasure hunt or my competitive nature to outbid, but I haven't been able to put the laptop down.
Once upon a time, I used to shake my head when patients told me all about their bike collection and which bike had which component and is made of which metal, etc. Now I'm admitting I am that bike freak. I want to talk bikes all day.
It's so bad that my new addiction is taking away time from my old addiction, which was actually riding a bike. I need help before I turn into a snobby bike owner. If you know of a support group, please feel free to email me. I'd prefer a support group that meets on a ride, preferably hilly, but not long 10-15% grades, maybe long 8% grades.
