>It's surprising how attached you can get to your bikes
True that. The first real mountain bike I bought was a Specialized Hardrock, when I was sixteen. £350, it came with all the mod cons, like cable-operated disk brakes!
Over the years I've swapped out every single part in it, save for the frame. I'm looking to put a Niner frame and wheels on it soon, but it will still be that first bike that I bought, damn it.
It works the other way too, though, I decided to splash out on a new Bianchi for the road, it gets half as much use as it should as I'm terrified of dropping it and chipping that lovely paint.
