What cycling stuff have you not bought today?
« 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 didn't buy a whole fleet of Van Nicholas loveliness at Corridori.

I haven't bought myself a Dawes Clubman, and haven't for a number of days now. Not sure how long that's going to keep up though :-\

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.

Neither did I...but only because I dithered on Wednesday & they'd sold out of what I wanted by yesterday (the bomber jacket fwiw)  :(

I didn't buy an Enigma Etape.  To be fair, I've spent around four years not buying one, so quite experienced.
;D  Andrij.  I pronounce you Complete and Utter GIT   :thumbsup:

I didn't buy mudguards, cassette, front & rear mechs. I tried to but somebody didn't sign for them, they got sent back and I've been refunded  :facepalm:

I didn't buy a recumbent, and I've not been doing for over twenty years now.

Hopefully I won't derail the topic, but I didn't buy a helmet, despite the Dubai police teling me I needed one... since I was only riding to the bike shop to pick up a bike box for packing my bike for the flight to India, it seemed qa bit pointless.

I did not buy a new bike, due to the final step of "confirm order" being borked on several attempts...this will hopefully be sorted out with a phonecall tomorrow
