Hi all,

Bit of catch up here but I have gone through my gmail and compiled receipts which contain the following (aggregate totals):

RS80 C50s: $755
Cateye strada + bike mount kit: $85
Arm warmers: $43
Cleats: $23
Garmin 500: $292
GSC10 sensor: $45
Gloves: $82
Bar tape: $14
Cleaning/tools: $104
Shorts: $102
Jerseys: $379
Jacket: $79
Bottles: $22
Bottle cages: $23
Lights: $102
Tubes: $76
Crudcatcher: $23
Bike stand: $40
Leg warmers: $18
Tyres: $195
Shoes: $144
Boot rack: $85
Shoe covers: $30
Helmet: $119

Total: $2866

Pretty sobering really :( I didn't think I had spent this much but definitely going to go easy on the credit card. I guess I haven't used quite a few of the items, have a stockpile of about 6 tyres and 12 tubes and spare sets of unused gloves etc.

Just placed a $160 order with Wiggle and tried to use the EXTRA10 discount voucher from the TdF but that offer had expired. I placed the order anyway then watching a You Tube video to see 10-OFF as the current discount code. :evil:
In the morning, we RIDE.

My bike cave is a big money pit, with 13 bikes I have a constant stream of parts arriving, waiting for bike #13(a bare frame to be built) to arrive.


You guys with 1 or 2 bikes are plain lucky, I wish I could live with that amount. :lol:

Hmm, let's see:

1x Shimano 105 RD - $60
1x Bontrager Aeolus 5 carbon-clincher wheel set - $2000
1x set of Bontrager cork brake pads - ~$30 (iirc)
1x Fizik Arione VS saddle $129
1x Shimano SPD-SL cleats
1x pair of Capo Modena gloves - $70
BNA cycling kit - can't remember the price - but easily worth the money
A heap of Castelli stuff coming soon - $450

Yeah, quite a decent lot. :wink: And a planned new bike too. I've been looking around at another one - saw a almost new Cervelo R5 going for $4000, but that seemed to good to be true, so I'll probably just build up a frame, perhaps a new Madone 6 series with Di2 and put all my existing fast parts on that and the Madone 4.5 can be the regular bike. I'm in no hurry. It'll make it a lot easier to manage rather than swapping wheels and brake pads over.

So one bike can be a proverbial GT1 and the other a GT3 if you know your racing. :wink:
