I find it makes more sense to compare bikes to shoes than cars or household appliances like vacuum cleaners. Shoe obsessions are very relatable.

And both bikes and shoes are very useful for getting around. Cars and vacuum cleaners, not so much.

Snow shoes = Fat Bike

I’m pretty happy with my one bike. Well, two, counting the fixie. Anyway, I’ve got one bike I use for errands, randonneuring, trail riding, friendly rides, and commuting, year-round, from summer to snow. All my bike maintenance money goes into one pot. So I don’t feel guilty about spending it.
