Always wanting to buy parts even though I don't need them . Just want to tell stuff out and switch things up . It's a curse ... literally have a bike I'm stoked on but I want to switch things again LOL "maybe I'll get a spline drive sprocket" "shorter cranks will work with my shorter chainstay" "I wonder if slightly smaller bars and a topload would feel good" "4 piece bars maybe?" "I wouldn't mind trying out this new system" etc ...

It's a curse devil I might just try and sell all my spare parts and build a new complete LOL . Surely it's not me right ? I mean I don't think it's bad , better than using money on drugs and shit but it's like fuck , it's an addiction . Candy shop almost . My bike shop is like "you're the most visited - customer" haha ... maybe I'll build a dirt jump bike or something !

I'm the same. Constantly wanting to dial my bike in or try something different. I'm thinking about a new frame and lower bars. But i could do with new rims too (the rear one's flaking quite badly and was built a bit dodgy by a mate, then I'd have to replace the front too so they match). If I get round to doing that I know I'll think about changing sometimg else.... A lot of my bike is second hand and has been around for a while too, so it could do with some attention.....

I can relate but when it comes to colors on my bike. I've gone from Aaron Ross style colorful bike to East Coast full black set up.

I hear ya. I dream about it, but don't have/spend the money to actually do it.

Right now I just want some fresh cables and a solid wheel truing. I have like 17 bucks to amazon, so cables are happening shortly, and wheel truing is just a matter of actual time spent on it. Hard part is that I just bought a Fatbike off eBay, so once that arrives I will be building and ripping around on that for a while.

For example , I really want to see how 10" FU bars in raw will match my frame and try 4 piece bars , I NEED to buy those upcoming Eclat Predator tires in that desert fan colourway , and I'm thinking about buying a brown seat even though I don't need one .

I wouldn't say that is too crazy. I have a pair of spare (older used) tires, bars I got in a trade, a front wheel from a trade, a rim, a couple sets of pedals, a few sprockets I've acquired over the years, various small hardware, a spare hubguard or two, a tube, like 8 pegs, and a couple other things.

Most of my stuff is older things I ran and replaced or got from trades.

I actually just had around 500 to spend (sold my road bike) but instead of BMX stuff I bought a Fatbike.
