Title: What cycling stuff have you not bought today?
Post by: Ham on January 20, 2012, 01:41:04 pm
A good friday afternoon topic.

I am boldly resisting replacing my 2008 Marin Point Reyes with.....

http://www.winstanleysbikes.co.uk/product/17359/Marin_Point_Reyes_Bike_2009

Because from 2010 they have downspecced the bike (removed its carbon fork, downspecced geartrain etc etc), and in its current format it is (IMO) one of the very best urban bikes out there. But then it would be so boring to replace a bike with the same again. But then again, it's probably worth £600 for the spares alone.

Resist.... resist.....

I still haven't bought a new Cateye rack-mounting bracket. Nor rejiggled my ver' cunning bodge job (the former Nabendynamolampensensorschaltergabelbrueckehalterung needs to be zip-tied on the inside of the random spare Lochhalteplatte to stop it wiggling about). Meanwhile I'm down to one rear light.

This laxness might be a bit to do with dropping the other light from a great height and smashing the lens thoroughly, mind you.

Haven't bought the rim and spokes needed to get HK's winter commuter up and running.
Haven't bought the headset or front brake needed for the Audax tandem.
Haven't bought the spare BB, new pedal and new rear light for my Brommie.
Haven't bought the new charger for HK's commuter front light.
Quite a 'to do' list building up.

I'm not cycling any more here - that's kinda the point. I was only going to collect the box so I can prepare my bike for leaving.

On the way back, with an 8' x 4' x 1' box stapped to the back of my bike, no one paid me any attention :)

I have NOT bought a Dirty Disco, despite me feeling the need for N+1, having a well timed tax rebate and needing something to do with my spare time, after working, cycling and being TLD's taxi for her very busy social life.  Hang om, spare time, what's that?

Whilst at Costco on Thursday I have spied the next, roughly bicycle related, purchase.

A heavy duty work bench and seperate, castored, tool box.  Should help tidy up the garage somewhat so we can get in there to get at the non-bike related stuff.

Not bought any new tyres for either of my bikes.  Decided that I'd be better off using what I currently have - Bonty Race X-Lite hard case on the road bike, and Bonty Race Lite Hard Case on the tourer.

Instead, I put the money towards a mini compressor & airbrush kit, so I can do better paint fettling of airfix kits!   :D

Aluminium - which is actually what I want! :thumbsup: Ideally I'd have a threaded BB as well, but I don't think the perfect bike exists. (I've also looked into a CAAD12, but the purple framesets are all but unobtainable in a 54, and the full build is Dura-Ace which is slight overkill for my needs and rather too spendy...).

I was watching a brand new Park BTS-1 BB facing and tapping set on eBay starting at £230 (less than half price).  It went for that, too.  But the seller, despite having 100% feedback, couldn't spell or punctuate and it smelt of scam.

an ICE Full Fat, because a) I would be killed utterly to DETH by Dr Beardy (Mrs) if it showed up at Beardy's burrow and its a little bit too small to hide, and b) its a bit of a one trick pony and although it would be fun cycling on the beaches and in the dunes, getting it there would be a pain.

I'd be interested to know how many of those they actually sell.  I mean, evidently enough for them to start producing them commercially, but I can't help thinking it's mostly a crowd-pleaser at trade shows.

I am eyeing up winter cycling kit in the expectation that now is a better time to buy than early November.

More specifically, bib tights.

I have my eye on these https://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/CLPXFLSRBT/planet-x-flanders-superroubaix-bib-tight which're £40, but my current much loved bib shorts are by Decathlon. They do a tights version for £60 https://www.decathlon.co.uk/900-warm-cycling-bib-tights-black-id_8396396.html which would have the same pad and material as the shorts version, so I am thinking of sucking it up and paying the £20 difference for consistency's sake.

Only complication is I'm assuming you can't make one pair of bib tights last all week so I'll probably need two sets, which raises the stakes a bit. £80 to Planet X or £120 to Decathlon? Arrrgh!

Almost bought a Sonder Camino Al. With the 15% discount, seems quite reasonably priced for the spec. Though I have several bikes already which need some work done, and haven't been used in ages, so I should get them sorted out first.
Might buy a Sonder sometime anyway. Maybe there will be a new version soon?

It's only a matter of time...

Unlikely - I thought it was ugly, and hey I've already got two Altura barbags.

Not purchased list grows:-

1. Pinnacle Neon 1 (new commuter/hack bike)
2. Altura Dryline 2 56L panniers (my current ones are falling apart and on their 3rd tactical application of duck tape).

Ooh.  Having had a quick look at the site, that's one of several things I haven't bought.

I haven't bought a Carradice Super C. I will make do with my barley and my cheapo frame bag for my trip to France next month instead, I won't be needing to pack much. It would be nice though...

One of them there PlanetX £500 1x11-spd bikes coz a) light alloy frame, which ain't necessarily bad in itself but at that price... b) looming Brexit implies customs sadism and c) we need a new hob.

The things look like fun, though. Not the hobs, the other.

Seriously, I really hope this trend for shiny purple stuff goes away soon. My bank balance can't really cope any longer. :-X
