well, to each his own. i know many who take credit loans to buy digicams and DSLRs and lenses, so why not bicycles if you're really crazy about them? also know people who buy diamonds on loan/credit also, not necessarily for themselves.

i personally wouldn't, but then i'm not crazy (about cycling). :D

if you are very sure that you will have a constant and stable income to pay back the loan and also you want the bicycle not because of BUY BUY BUY syndrome

why not?

The banks must be really happy.

The debt syndrome is so entrenched that most in the developed world are living on projected earnings and instant gratification.

In business, loans can be leveraged for future earnings. For regular consumers, loans reduce us to perpetual financial slavery.

So.....who drives and hasn't paid off the loans yet?:D

How about "He can only cycle on a 5k bicycle? " :p

Jeeezz, I can't imagine how a 5k bicycle looks like, not into all these bicycle thingy. But getting a loan for a bike sounds a little.....

Used to be a biking enthusiat once. 5K for a pro spec mountain bike is actually not that exp man

Frame (Titanium) Ard S$3,000
Drive Train (Shimano XTR) Ard S$2,000
Front suspension fork Ard S$600
Seat (Titanium) Ard S$300
Headset Ard S$200
Handlebar Ard S$300
Tires and wheels................

So u see, its alot of investment.

All hobbies are expensive lah.

When you tell people i have spent 5k on my camera (i didnt!), they will say you siao.

When people tell you they spent 5k on audio, you say they siao.

When you borrow 5k just to satisfy a hobby? I really don't know what to say...:rolleyes:

:dent:

BraveHart, I guess it also depends on your friend's status. If he's finanically strong, with a high pay job etc, that's not too bad.

However, I'm still thinking loan 5k just for a bike is a bit...er.... espcially when the market is pretty er...

:rolleyes:
