Nah, don't think anyone wants that.

Bad luck for them then... :P

About 8.5k so far this year. A Giant Propel Advanced SL1 made up a good chunk of that. A new trainer, new bike lights, tyres, tubes, new brake pads, stands, some smaller tools etc. Yay for so many bikes haha.

Which Orbea? 3 bikes including an orbea in 5.5k is pretty nice going.

An Orca slt. 6 months ago they had a 5-6k price tag at some places (some joints still want 3.5k plus :shock: ). Lucky for me that it fit me nice, my wife's Spanish and failure wasn't an option :lol:

Sweet! I'd happily upgrade to Silver Orca... The onix has been replaced by the bronze. If they're getting cheaper, it's getting tempting :-)

Dropped about $350 lastnight.

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.

Very nice list. That will be one hell of a bike. :)


Too much bike for me. I had my eye on the SL0 but when I crashed my old bike there was 14 week wait for the sl 0 and given the price of the di2 bits was the difference between the sl1 and sl0 I got the sl1.


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. :D 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.

Will grab a different seat for the MTB when I get back to Aus, and probably need to grab another set of pedals and shoes for the Venge, as well as a tail bag and assorted bits and bobs, lights and I wouldn't mind some new roadie gloves and the Roubaix could use some new wheels and...

Not sure if I'm winning or losing?

I built a Pinarello Dogma2 with Super Record for just under $7000. I figured I saved somewhere between 3-5K. Does that mean I'm in the money pits for $7000, or am i up $3000 - $5000 :)

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. :lol:

I've got to get some repairs done on my giant after coming off it yesterday (hit a large rock at night - hard to see).

It's just the derailleur hanger is a bit bent.

And I can remove my last addition to the money pits, the bike fixes were no charge in this case. It's back and looking fine again.

Hmm - some physio today to put right a little nagging soreness in the back of the knee. It started coming good today anyway - and now feels quite fine.

Nothing else in the money pits for me.

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! :shock:

Then I changed to winter tyres & put 160g back on! :P
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.
