Garmin Edge 1030 Plus (to replace the faulty Edge Touring Plus, and it's replacement, an 830,
which I found too small, and returned for a refund).

Cost me £363.98 (after the 30% discount Garmin offered me).

A new front light for the Pino. The Very Old halogen lamp powered one is disappointingly, almost dangerously, dim, so I've got me some B&M led lumens, the same one mentioned in the thread started by The Family Cyclist. Some jibbling and a small amount of soldering will be needed, as the (rim) dynamo is on the back wheel.

"overhaul" it, or you can ride it.  (Jerome K Jerome)

Derailleur RD-6800-gs + hanger, headset spacers for another bike. And I wish I hadn't had to.  :'(

Derailleur is 2nd hand unused, and I hope the fellow I bought it from is honest and actually sends it.
But they never got to Carcassonne.

I had a mtb chainset on my croix de fer, but I dont like the wide Q factor.  (I had to use spacers to get it to fit). So I ordered a small chainset from Spa with a regular 110mm sq taper b/b which should be a lot narrower, and also gone down from 175mm to 170 to give my knees a little bit less of a workout.

A Dura Ace 7800 rear hub (to help with a wheel build).

A sora triple crank, triple shifters and triple front derailleur for the second bike.

I know triples are heavy - but they completely suit my riding and speed.

If I can get another set at a good price, I'll downgrade the Elan to Sora too: Then both bikes can share parts.
