I think I have to resist temptation nearly everyday. Most days not a bike/frame but components, accessories, clothes etc. that I see on sale, or not, at different websites, want ads, bike shops and c'list/Ebay. I keep telling myself to quit looking, but I really like window, so to speak, shopping for bike related items Recently it has been clothes and saddles. If one really looks, one is going to find something they "need" or want. But the distinction between need and want gets blurred quite easily when a legitimately good price on an item is found. Not saying there saying there is anything wrong with want, but compulsive purchases, for me anyway, often wind up sitting in a drawer, tool box or hanging in a closet with other stuff that do not fit into my thoughts and expectations at the time of purchase.
