Actually your analogy is still wrong.... a brand new bike needs to be run in carefully, you can't do things with it you really want to, you're afraid of damaging it, you're worried about someone stealing it and you know the minute you took it out of the shop it lost 30% of it's value. Where as the old banger can be thrashed within an inch of her life and still go well, she doesn't lose value anymore and no one will steal her.
It was just a joke :) But for the sake of debating... A new bike is still a new bike, you pay a higher price and take good care of it and show more love towards it and you get greater enjoyment from it. Its closer to your heart. A used bike is a more practical decision made with mind :)
:) The problem is that as we get older... it's harder to find unused bikes of the type or size we prefer.... At my age the bikes I like have all been ridden hard and put away wet many times over.
