    What's Your Most Recent bike related spending?

    I haven't ridden my Lemond Poprad in 3 months because of a bent rear wheel so I finally went and bought myself a new wheel.

    I went to Sid's Bike Shop... a little pricey in my book, but I was in the area and it was convenient.

    I told them my budget and ended up getting a Mavic Open Pro with a Shimano 105 hub. It was $169.00. I also had to get a chain whip, and that as $40 bucks.

    Getting to ride my Lemond again is pretty nice though, took it out both Saturday and Sunday and got in about 80 miles over both days.
    I rock peas on my head but donít call me a pea head.
    Bees on my head but donít call me a bee head.
    Bruce Leeís on my head but donít call me a Lee head.
    Now please excuse me, I gots to get my tree fed.

    I had a near blowout on my rear tire during RAGBRAI...I had to backtrack to a previous town and purchase a new one. $50 for an racelight Bontrager.

    I bought a bolt for an american classic seatpost I found in the trash.

    The bolt was $.25 +$.01 tax.

    So I got a perfectly functional american classic seatpost for $.26!

    Well, just put new brake pads (frt.& rear) on my mtn.bike, but had new ones on hand in my "bike bag", so guess that doesn't count. But noticed my derailleurs (both) had worn a bit, so I just bought new front and rear ders. Wife's front derailleur cable just frayed and parted ways, so replaced that, also from the "bike bag", but had never noticed that it was a lower level der., so I ordered her a new XT front der. Other than that, have some Hutchinson tires waiting for me to put them on-but I'm working on wearing out the pair I have first. Seems derailleurs have gotten my $$ lately! Wife's bike is fairly original. My bike- still have original wheelset and cassette-that's about it! (and thinking about replacing them).
