Have a BoB F8 on the way and I'm not sure if I should keep/sell the Orbea or Wilier? The Italian was an NOS from 2013 that I got for less than a third of the going price while the Basque frameset was purchased as a complete bike late 2016.

Has carbon technology improve a bunch in the last few years?

My old frame is hanging in the garage. Not sure if I'll make it into a Zwift or roller machine in the basement, but it's not worth te $ to sell and ship it. Also half thinking about hanging it on the wall in the basement as "art," but I'm too smart to ask my better half about it...

If you aren't going to ride it, sell it. I've let old bikes/frames sit in the garage for years. They just lose more and more value over time.

Yeah,

But which one? I like the idea of having Canuck, Italiano and Vasco bikes. On another forum, it was stated that an F8 would be better than the Colnago C-60 or Litespeed TL1s I was lusting after.

I've upgraded one bike and built up two back to back in 17 months(I need a break from the stress)!

It's not good to have too many options.

Get rid of the one you will use less, and be honest with yourself. (Thats what I repeatedly tell the wife. The question "can it be used" often gets confused with "will it be used")

Unless you are an art collector... bikes are meant to be used.

Why won’t you be able to ride them? Don’t sell because you feel like you should, if you wanted to get rid of one you would already know which one and wouldn’t be asking. If you’ve run out of space, need to free up some money, don’t like it any more etc fair enough

I've always had one bike except for the time I owned a C-dale for two weeks before laying it down in an intersection during high traffic.

Then sell them all apart from the new one? What’s the question exactly?
