How long 'till my wife finds out about my new wheels???

So yesterday I became the owner of a "Hand Me Down" Kona Stinky 5.0. I got a good deal since a buddy wanted to get rid of it.

I came home yesterday and put it on a bike stand in my garage right in front of where my wife parks her car. Granted, she had her bike there before and I just put this one in-front, it is RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER! I have my 2 other bikes hanging from the ceiling so you would think she would notice another bike there. It is more than 24hrs now and still no word about it :D

Anyway, I hope she never finds out 'cause I will be in a lot of trouble :p
I don't think that my argument, that I least I didn't go out and buy the AS-X for $3,000 that I wanted, will convince her that I made the right choice.

So, this Friday afternoon I will go to El Diablo to do my official first ride with this bike. :getsome:

I would recommend that you tell her before she finds out on her own... Not a fun experience...:eek:

:D good deal!! but don't blow it at the Churn N Burn later this year, since she is planning on joining me as my support team.

I told her all about this dude with the long beard that camped next to me who had a support team and how cool was that, so I am dragging her butt with me this year to keep my Gatorade cold ;)

I'll be like "Honey, this is the guy that never picked up his bike!" :D

and i'll be like:

"WHOOOAAAAHHHHH MAAAAAANNNNN!!!!! i like, so totally forgot about that bike! farrr out!" that should be enough to scare her off asking anymore questions.

Sean you have a support team? Why are Shaggz and I not part of it. I can pump up tires pretty well, and Shaggz can shine those reflectors of yours until they are blinding...

my sister had a business meeting in the area for that race, so she came along and did an awesome job. she also pitted for me at 24 o mooch too. she rules. you guys can be my support team if you want. there's really not much to go wrong with my bikes, so it should be a really easy job.

Not exactly... :eek: look at my sig line and pic. I can change a tire or fix a flat moderately fast.

Shaggz can bring his portable bike stand!

then i'll say:

"tell ya what, i'll sell it to you for $50 cash, right now. whatcha say? can't pass up an offer like that!"

:D

Then I'll chime in with "Hello old chap", hand you $55 dollars and then scoot over pick up my new/used Kona Stinky that I got an incredible deal on.

Thanks!

Pure genius. We will call you El Capitan Obviouso and your wife Seniora Obliviosa

You should have said that at least she didn't find out about the other wife

that's right, i forgot! you're a certified bike mechanic now. this is gonna be sweet!
I'm ready - I successfully changed my rear cassette, chain and adjusted my rear der this weekend.

Telling your wife you got a new bike is like ripping off a band-aid, Just do it real fast and it will sting for a bit and then its over:D

Buy her something shiny to distract her -- women are easily distracted by small pretty shiny things. Or, take her shoe shopping. :D

Okay -- let the flaming begin. :p
