  • Nah, think of it as a health investment. Mine cost $650 about 11yrs ago...with regular maintenance and adjustments, its made the expense well worth it.

  • My hubby bought an $800 bike, and he loves it! (Ya know, now that I say that, I think he got it on sale cheaper than that because it was the last year's model or something!) He rides on it ALL THE TIME! It's a TREK, it's lasted 3 years now, and it holds up well with regular maintenance and such. I think it's incredibly worth it. I'd love to have one, but I think his attitude about me "riding off' for an hour and a half would be a whole lot different than him just riding off and leaving the kids with me....why is that????

  • if its built for long use and is comfortable then its a good investment, as long as it doesnt get tossed to the back of the garage after your triathlon.
