I spent about €700 quid on a hardtail about 18 months ago, and all i wan to do now is upgrade now to a full suspension DH bike.

Its become an expensive hobby.

I love mountain biking. But I'm still using my 15 year old Giant with no suspension at all.

I want to splash out on a new one but other things keep taking priority :(

ha. no he just set up an online business and didn't bother to get a shop. makes sense, especially with the ownership laws here (if you want to set up a company outside of a free zone, it needs to be 51% owned by a local)

I bought a dining room table and chairs.

This is depressing to me. Bloody expensive stuff too.

She spends all my money now, but I "manage" the money. if i didn't reign her in every so often, she would spend her wages in a day.

totally sexist i know

but women love buying stuff...impulsively...whereas men tend to make more calculated purchases
