I'm just curious as to how cost effective most of us are. What's the current cost of your bike per mile (km) that you have on it?
Example: My current ride has about 7100 miles and paid $750 for it (BD bike) plus about $50 for a different saddle, new brake cable, bar tape, etc. Excluding the cost of tires and tubes, that comes out to about $0.11 (US) per mile.
I'm sure some of you veteran tourers have done far better.
