    Not a physical purchase but I had a GURU TT bike pro-fit today for the new winter TT bike build...thinking a K-Zero if the fit math works out

    Not sure about the broken stuff but I love my Speedplays, and I love the fact they have the built in grease port no disassembling the pedal to relube and a bunch of other features I like about Speedplays.

    nah, he was taking a stab at the guy new LOOK pedals, not the speedplays. I used speedplay for years on my road bike without any issue too, but my right foot started to hurt and going back to LOOKs helped me. I still use speed plays on the MTB.

    Oh ok. I actually use the Frogs on my road bike and touring bike, I like the fact I can ride my road bike go into a different town and be able to walk around if I want to. The full float thing took about 3 months to get use to because it felt like I was squirming on my pedals, but now I really like them.

    ^ yeah it's float that began to bug me... after a knee surgery , I decided less float was better because it was a lot easier for me to unclip with less float.

    Frogs? Lol that's the speedplay equivalent to using spd mountain bike pedals on your road bike.

    Please don't.

    Never had surgery on my knees, though my wife just today had knee surgery, but I have knee issues only when I run. I read on the internet that full float was better for your knees on several different sites, while I did come off of no float where I had no issues, I have no issues with the full float either. I also have had no problems getting in or out of the Frogs and this is after 40 years of riding clip and straps.

    I bought a new tire and thought it was pretty cool...then I see all the really cool stuff you guys are buying in this tread! Anyway, bought a Continental Grand Prix 4 Season for my winter rim. Will be trying it out to see how the tire fares in my area.

    Crank Brothers Sterling CO2 inflator. Pretty clever design, but the truth will only be revealed when I have a flat!

    I got a 5 hour energy shot and some Powerbars. It definitely helped out riding 50 miles.

    Picked up some new Michelin Pro tires. While cleaning the bike after a rain ride, I came across a bump in the rear tire. Turned out to be one inch of exposed casing. The rubber was completely gone and the tire still held through the ride. I now have around 7000 miles on Michelin Pros without a flat. I'll keep buying them until the build quality goes downhill.

    Does not matter- as long as it keeps you riding. I'm waiting for my Schmolke TLO OS bars to arrive. Had them a few years back, went for a fitting and I was told they had way too much reach for me. Turns out the fitter sucked- didn't fix my problem. Went to a different fitter recently and he fixed the problem- turns out with my leg issue fixed my reach for my "proper position" is back to where the Schmolke bars are perfect. Could have gone cheaper, but why? I love those freaking bars!
    Words are like bullets I let them pass through me. Giggity!

    A person does need to find a balance. A lot of stuff I see people buying is to upgrade something that isn't even broken or worn out, yet they feel the need to upgrade, that's cool it's their thing, but the average person in reality doesn't have the money to be getting this sort of stuff, and a lot just throw the purchases on their credit cards and let the balance pile up costing a fortune in interest and all in the pursuit of trying to keep up with their friends or with the bike club or just so they look a certain way when riding. Obviously if a person has so much money that it spews out of their pockets then they can afford whatever they want and they deserve it! I rarely upgrade a bike, in fact I can't recall when I did! All my bikes, even my racing bike I bought new in 84 never got upgraded, of course I had to replace wheels and gears as they wore out but I never went and upgraded stuff like the steel fork to a carbon one, or aluminum rims to carbon, etc, nor upgraded say the wheels before they wore out. I kept all my replacement parts close to stock specs to keep the price of this sport/hobby down. I guess I'm weird that way.

    Before some of you start throwing stones at me, note I did say if you have the extra cash to buy whatever you want then you deserve to buy whatever you want. But if you're constantly banging the credit card and never paying off the balance 100% at the end of the month, and or delaying buying your kids clothes (or whatever), or the interest from the credit card is taking money out of the family budget so you can have your toy upgraded then there's something wrong with your priorities!

    I'm with you 100%. Unfortunately, our economy depends on folks spending in that way. Somewhere just shy of creating a bubble (hopefully), but certainly using (and borderline abusing) their credit. It's an ugly cycle...and then there's payday lending...

    May as well close the thread now that we've all been shamed into silence on our new purchases.
