I was just about to post two pictures of Jon's bikes and then I read Jon's blog. Very funny coincidence.
One of Jon's friends in Boise was asking why we need so many bikes or rather why we need so many Merckx bikes. I do agree they appear similar and some we do not ride as much as we like. The reasons are many but they seem rather silly when one has to speak of them. Somehow stating the subtle differences of riding a Corsa from a MX leader just seems lame.
Patrick in our riding group figures he needs three. One his Look 555 is his all rounder-all condition bike. He also needs a white and black BMC Pro Machine because it would be great for TEAM CATALOGUE to all be on similar bikes. And then he needs a Look 595...why? because it would be everything he wanted in a bike. It would only be for the smoothest pavement and only for days where he felt like do some speed work or winning a field sprint.
I for one want many bikes because I just love to look at them. Which is why I was going to post these pictures of Jon's bikes.
