The achilles heel of any woman in financial debates: her shoe collection and its value.

Mention this and buy carbon, you can.

This is a wind up right, If she cant accept that you spend your money on bikes rather than beer, cigarettes, lap dancers etc etc but choose to spend it on something healthy which makes you happy then utter the immortal words

The bike was here long before you were.

Cheers Nik!

When people ask me what my carbon wheels cost me. My stock reply is 'A conservatory!' :lol:

Nonsense a pair of carbon wheels is a one of payment, a pervertory will suck the heat out of your house for many a winter and cook you every summer. Basicaly a greenhouse with a laminate floor.

If all else fails show her the furry side of your pimp hand!

Thats how I roll :P

Just don't let her know how much it costs. Tell her that you can get this great deal on a new frame from this guy on the WW forum & that when you sell your current frame the upgrade is only going to cost you about 200 pounds. Use a seperate account (paypal?) to pay for the frame though! :wink:

"please please please please please"...if it works for the kids to get what they want for Christmas, then surely unashamed begging is the approach to use.

I still say if you have to lie and deceive her then you need to reassess your relationship

I'd agree with that, but hey, my wife was the one that convinced ME to get a new bike, my first carbon one. This on top of the fact that I kept telling her I was happy with my magnesium bike!! 8)

I really like this idea. Simply tell her that you are going to buy a new bike frame. When she finds out the cost and says no, simply say OK.

Go to a strip club until 2am without her knowledge. Then, when she asks where you were, say that you were doing what a "typical guy" does and went to the strip club with some friends and blew a wad of cash (you really don't need to even go, but just stay out late). When she flips out, tell her that you can be an atypical guy and instead buy something healthy...a bike.

Or just buy it and repent, so at least you never heard the words "no."

Small parts can be bought and negotiated. More expensive parts need several smaller withdrawals over a few months and then cash payment 8)

Build the frame quickly while shes away, she will never notice it is new :D

Another strategy could be to create an extra source of income and use that one for your cycling stuff.
Sure you need a bit of creativity and some time to create a decent budget, but if you have a nice idea and you succeed with it then you can have a "self-filling" paypal account that you can use without any question asked :D

(of course the day job does not apply as "extra source of income" :lol:)

So after the bills are paid and food bought. What business is it of hers what you spend your money on?

I think the term "pussy whipped" seems to apply to some on here
