Wants Vs. Needs ~ a Question

I don't know about you, but my list of wants is a mile long. Unfortunately the list of needs is far longer. :(

My question for you today is this: My dear daughter has "assumed possession" of my bike. I no longer have a bike to ride other than an old one of Mike's. I am 5'2.5" and he is 5'10". Does not quite work... So, on to the question...

~ If you were "bikeless" would you consider that a WANT or a NEED?

Basically, I'm looking for data to back up my thought that it is a neeeed:) heh heh!


  1. Give me the luxuries of life and I will willingly do without the necessities. - Frank Lloyd Wright

    A bike that fits is a necessity!

  2. Depending on the finances... you could get a used bike that fits at a garage sale -- NEED.

    If money is no problem then get the bike you want new -- WANT.

  3. ohh well hmmm I sometimes call my wants, needs so that I can justify the cost :)

  4. Need! It will really help with your fitness without all the pounding of running. I just got a road bike, and it is changing my life and making me a better runner. Get the nicest one you can comfortably afford--it's definitely worth it, but fit is the MOST important thing. You can't ride your husband's!
