I'd just get a new bike. To me, bikes are tools and I've put 30 to 40 thousand miles on several of them but never get emotional about them. I have at least 35,000 on my main bike and if something happened to it which rendered it unridable I would look to find something better. In fact, I'm starting to get the N+1 bug already and the thing keeping me from buying is the fact that I no longer have a job.

Still nice to think about a new bike, though.
