I'll vote for 2 routes, and choose the 1 that has the best pie!

She already knows I'm crazy. A lot of people tell me that it's easier to get forgiveness than it is to get permission.

Just think, before we were married we had 9 bikes between the two of us. Boy the good ole days are gone!!

In the past my wife has given me grief about buying bikes at times. Somehow in the last 12 months I have gotten permission to buy two additional bikes. Neither was terribly expensive. She must be going soft.

Easy you want to buy the one now in the off season so it's cheaper and will sell the old one come summer when the market is hot and hope that by then she forgets. Or go with your not sure if this is the right bike and you want to try it out for a little and promise to sell one laterand again hope she forgets
