New Bike or no New Bike?
The question is, should I spend lots of money on a new road bike or should I not earn that money in the first place by working less and spend the time training instead?
What would be the most beneficial, faster times due to a better bike, or faster times because I’ve spent more time training?
To be honest, I think I’ll have to go for the new bike and here are three good reasons why:
- If there’s a chance for some new toys then you have to take it – “He who dies with the most toys wins!”.
- There’s only so much training that my (not so young) body can take and if I do too much I’ll start getting problems with my knees and back.
- It’s easier. Training is hard work, saving time by buying a new bike is much easier!
I wonder how much difference it will make though.
