Does buying a bike and accessories for somebody else count?

And I thought this was going to be a cheap sport.

1 I decided in mid Feb to buy my first bike in 30 years (just to get fit) - flat bar hybrid - budget around $5-600.
2 As I had been a time triallist in my youth I decided I didn't like flat bar bikes, so decided on a road bike - upped my budget to $1000.
3 My research indicated that as I had a bad back (old rock climbing injury) I would get a more comfortable ride with a carbon frame - budget went up to $2000.
4 None of the bikes in this price range had wheels suitable for a 110kg rider - allow another $500 or so for Velocity Fusion wheels.

So - the amount I've now spent so far??

Cannondale Synapse Carbon 5 105 (2011) $2000
Velocity Fusion wheels (after trade for Shimano RS20's) $290

Then we decided that my partner needed a bike to do some weekend bikepath riding with me - so:
Giant Cross City 3 (2011) $450

Then I decided that the Synapse wouldn't be any good on bikepaths (I had after all bought it for serious fitness riding!) - so I needed a second bike:
Cannondale Quick 3 (2011) $720

Total so far $3460

And I haven't even started on all the associated gear yet - that comes in the next two weeks :(

And I'm already planning my first upgrade to the Synapse - an Ultegra Di2 system...... where will it all end :shock:

Ahhh, played rugby for years a new pair of boots every couple of years and a mouth guard a bit of membership and everything was supplied.
So far this year
Garmin edge 500 $300
Sunglasses photochromic $70
Assorted bike clothes $240
Tyres gator skin and tubes $65
New chain and service $90

But I can walk the next day and not be sore for a week after a ride like my latter footy days :mrgreen:
