Bike Choice Dilemma

Hi all,

Just looking for a few opinions if you don't mind.

I am currently at my d-1 limit of bikes, which consists of a hybrid (Specialized Sirrus) that I use through the winter and a roadie (Triban 500SE) that I use through Spring and Summer and is currently attached to the turbo trainer.

I am trying to put together the cash for a new machine (specifically a Triban RC520) but need to replace one of the current incumbents rather than take on an extra (by agreement with my better half I can only have a maximum number of bikes, guitars and computers around the place).

The dilemma is ... do I replace the 500SE, which has served me well for over 11,000 miles so far (3,000 of them on Zwift) and do a straight swap using the new one for Summer and turbo use OR replace the Sirrus, use the RC520 outside all year round and retire the 500SE for turbo use only?

Any thoughts welcome.
