Zoot - I'm now in the process of wooing my wife.

She says that it's not so much the money, but what bike am I going to get rid of to free up space. She has a point, but...

48 out of 50 states will recognize this as grounds for an "at fault" divorce and ensure you a generous alimony from your wife.

Just sayin'....

I bought a new bike last year and told my wife I not getting rid of any of my bikes. In the past I gave them away to deserving teenagers. But that did not go well as some of them either had drug problems and sold them for drugs or just sold them for profit. My Colnago Master X-Light is 19 years old. Seldom ride it, but I will never part with it. Of course I only have three bikes. I tend to only ride one bike. Nice to have at least one for a back up.

OC - I stated in my first post that I was just doing research and would not be buying in the too near future...

Almost changed that yesterday ; ) But I do quite like my wife.

Found a spot for another bike to hang. I'll sneak that fact in for her to contemplate.

Also had a friend in the industry tell me he could get me a Look of my choice for about a third off... They don't seem to be too weight conscious though I noted as I went over their different specs.

You’re going to make me scroll back all the way to page 1?

These four pages don’t read like just research but someone gunning to pull that trigger save for perhaps the grapes of wrath from the boss at home. Hahaha.

When discussing a new bike I mentioned selling off one of the others and my wife asked, "Why?"

OK then!

I will add to your choices. Haven’t looked into it at all, the LBS posted this one that’s all. It seemed to match directionally what you’re lusting.

OC - the stack is not tall enough. I stopped ballet several years ago and can no longer press my palms to the floor, or plié...
