Much has been written over the years about the search for the perfect collection of bikes, widely referred to as the n+1 theory.
What's more concerning from a personal viewpoint was the fact that for a while I was of the view that I'd reached a sort of bike owning plateau, and as such n+1 didn't apply to me. I was immune from this all powerful phenomenon.
Of course i was wrong. A report from Eurobike last week started it off, and before I knew it I was scouring the web for more details. It all led to just one conclusion, that the n+1 theory still held.
After (not)much deliberation, I pulled the trigger. It's not due to arrive for a few weeks, but I can rest assured that the golden rule of bike ownership still holds.
