If enough members want it up, I'll sticky this thread.
Nah, don't think anyone wants that.
Bad luck for them then...
open topic, for anything cycling related.

...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

Overshoes, arm warmers, knee warmers, winter headband, socks, new light, jockey wheels, embrocation (first time shaving & purchase, so I got a variety lol), chamois cream, K-Edge Garmin mount, Nuun tabs (awesome special on wiggle atm).
Still need a Gilet but going to go local on that one, not risking flappies.
My SL3 turned out to be heavier than I wanted with the wheels I'm using. I'll put up with that on hills a bit for the speed on the flat sections, which is useful as I don't quite have the sheer power to crank up to 60+km/h.
And as for the hills, I'm only 60kg and that makes up for the rest. Just need to get my heart rate a bit lower and the rest will be right.
I also got some new SIDI shoes and Giordana long bib-tights since it is getting cold now.

Not sure if I'm winning or losing?
A friend of mine got me back into bike riding in Oct last year, 2 bikes and $4000 later with a third bike in the pipeline, whats the price of friendship and I don't even sleep with him, hookers would have been cheaper and I'ld have got as much exercise
....<ahem> .... interesting post...
Here's my blog - A bit of fun
"Riding not racing...."
Very tongue in cheek, I should have said pleasurable exercise, in all honesty I was hooked on bicycle riding 20 odd years ago but had less disposable income so was predisposed to be more frugal, now the boss says why do you need 6 cycle jerseys, 4 pair of nicks, 3 jackets, 2 helmets, 4 pair of gloves, 2 pair of sunnies, arm warmers, leg warmers, 4 spare tyres, several tubes, bandanna, cap, pumps, lights, etc etc and the list keeps growing.
Oakley Radarlock Path - Red Frame, black stems, black lens and a photochromatic vented clear lens as well. Awesome.
The price, not so awesome.
Must remember that.
Threw some new bits at my MTB recently:
Rock Shox Reba dual-chamber air-spung fork
Easton EA90 carbon handlebar
FSA OS99 carbon/alloy stem
Control Tech carbon seatpost
Shimano XT I-spec shifters
Shimano XT "Race" pedals
Took nearly 800g out of the bike!
Then I changed to winter tyres & put 160g back on!
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.
Ugh, so add in:
Sidi dragon 3's (didn't liek the northwaves)
Cervelo R3 (so much for the road biek being all good, cannondale broke gar)
Cervelo R3, GT Xizang
