Old Total $1,479.51

Following my bike being wrecked while on my car, those bracciano wheels from the last purchase made it to nearly 80km/2 days before being wrecked... Not a great $/km ratio, but biven a car smacked them it's understandable :roll:

Pro-lite Bracciano Wheels $419
Prolite Photochromic sunnies $69.95

Orbea Onix $1600 :mrgreen:
GP4000s Tyres (2) $109.50
Saris Solo Bike Rack $40

New Total $3717.96

Hopefully to be offset by some amount from insurance, sometime down the track...

My wife got sick of keeping our bikes taking up space in the living room, so on the weekend we got one of these:

$95 from Super Elliotts. It works pretty well although we're at the limit of its height so its slightly wobbly if you bump it. When we get a new place hopefully we wont have ridiculously high ceilings.

So far this year-

$123 6700 FD
$128 2x7900 Chains
$180 6700 RD
$128 1 pair of Evo Corse tyres
$146 2x6700 Cassettes
$206 2 pairs of Gatorskin folding tyres
$152 Prologo saddle
$132 FSA Carbon stem
$250 Time RXS carbon pedals
$166 3 sets Time RXS cleats
$25 2 sets of Kool stop brake pads
$18 2 sets of Venzo Carbon brake pads
$400 2 sets of Fulcrum 5 rims
$150 Bont A3 Carbon shoes
$275 Bont A1 Carbon shoes
$80 Used Shimano SH-R14 Carbon shoes
$267 3 Vermarc Jerseys
$169 1 Vermarc 'Foul' weather jersey
$291 3 Vermarc Bib Knicks
$66 3 Vermarc gloves
$72 6 pairs of cycling socks


Total so far (without the cost of 3 visits to the bike mechanics & assorted lubricants)-about $3500, yeah I know, I've included riding gear, but I've not included a new Carbon Fibre frame I had sitting around to a mate who's bike snapped in the rear end, a used frame that I purchased to build for the Pan Pacs (but now mightn't get built because I'm thinking of going back to riding track), no I haven't bought a new bike this year or re-built a frame, my costing is all due to the amount of riding I do.

My money pit is- cycling.
