    Getting My Second Bike .

    Just put a deposit on a 2013 Wilier Zero.7 frame. Will build it with eTap with all other components matching the Orbea.

    Only your second bike? You're still a newbie around these parts, LOL!

    Getting a second (or 3rd) bike is always the right answer.

    Is this a replacement or are you building a stable. You know you're an addict when you have more than one bike at a time. I'm up to four and really need to get rid of one.

    Only four? You're still just getting started.

    An NOS $5k frame for less than a 1/3 was too hard to pass up.

    Yep.

    One for the trainer
    One for work
    One for getting lost on

    Actually, I'm done. Every Nov, Litespeed has a sale and to get a T1sl, I'd have to get rid of one.
