I just put a deposit on a `09 Cannondale SIX carbon 3 white w/red accents. I can't wait to get it paid off and start logging miles on it
2009 Cannondale SIX carbon 3
1996 Loadstar Team Issue
Just got this, very helpful for on-the-fly food/tissue/cell access:
Wish I had some new carbon dream machine to show off.
1. Dura Ace 7800 chain
2. Shimano Pro Vibe Carbon post
3. Shimano Pro PLT round alloy bars (in dark silver)
4. Front Derailleur hanger (cheap black one from KHS)
5. Sella Italia Flite Team Edition saddle
5. Fizik microtex white bartape (to go with the red hudz to match the saddle colors)
6. Garmin Speed/Cadence sensor (I am giving up the Quarq PM for the BB30 cannondale cranks -- this is bittersweet )
BTW, If anyone wants to buy a quarq S900 pm crank. Let me know!
I can't wait to get this beast built up this week. It'll definitely get its own thread when its done.
Just picked it yesterday.

A new helmet to replace the one that broke (and prevented who-knows-what) when I got hit by the vehicle.
I've got the deposit down on the replacement bike, but I'm hoping (dreaming?) that the driver's insurance will be covering that 'purchase'.
Free cable crimps from LBS. Not really a "purchase".
some neuvation R28 Aero 4, need some cheap trainers. we will see how they hold up. next week im putting a deposit down on a Isaac frameset.

Time for a new helmet. Broke another yesterday in a crash.
Rudy Project Kontact+. I love their helmets.

I'm really running out of ideas for bike stuff. I got this not so much for myself but to keep gunk out of the headset of my MTB.
Magicshine 900 Lumen headlight, from geomangear.com. Lights up the night for well under $100! (for those interested in this light, see the thread on electronics forum)
ZIPP 404's however they are clincher version. Do & did not have patience to get tubular version.
(Alloy, not carbon. Got from grahny.)

I upgraded this bike:
With this fork:
The uber-light and STIFF Cannondale Slice Si full carbon fork is 100% carbon fiber, from steerer to drop outs. TIME makes this fork entirely by hand in France...even hand-weaving the carbon sheets in house! The result is a work-of-art in the very same way the Thomson Masterpiece seatpost is crafted. This fork's stiffness and tensile strength rating was in the same league as the LOOK HSC-5SL, Easton EC-90SLX and the Ritchey Carbon Pro forks as tested by Bike Magazine in Germany. Made for only three model years(2002-2004), the TIME/Si fork is undoubtedly Cannondale's FINEST FORK ever produced.
I effectively removed 250 grams(1/2 pound) off the bike...and the difference is felt the instant I spin 110rpm downhill, with rock-solid 45mph stability and telepathic steering precision. Even though I waited almost three months for this rare, out-of production fork to appear- it is the BEST $75.00 I ever spent on my bike.
What's in your wallet?
Now just imagine how an entire TIME bike must ride....
dropped some big bucks
and i got the stand and mat with it for $320
