    I'm running out of things to buy for my bike

    So far I have purchased a new seat, seatpost, tires, cassette, computer, and I'm just waiting on a new stem. After that I don't know what I'm going to obsess over. I guess I'll just ride the **** out of it until something breaks.

    How about new wheels, dropping some serious coin?

    You haven't replaced the frame yet.

    Handle replaced twice. Head replaced once.

    There you go! You just misspelled it.

    If you're looking for new bling brakes you could always go ZG ooooorrrrrr, if you're feeling like something different, you could try eebrake:

    What you do next is look over your pile of parts that you have taken off your bike and think, "ya know all I'd need to make a "beater" bike out of that is..."

    However, then you upgrade the beater bike and repeat.
    You had best invest in a decent frame for the beater.

    But, would you still hang out here? I'm thinking that if not, a petition could be started very quickly for a name change.

    Time for an engine upgrade. Unfortunately money can't really buy them though, it takes actual work.

    You could always go for the gratuitous titanium bolt kit for everything and have the fun of basically rebuilding the bike with the same parts

    nokon cables, tiso bolts, KCNC skewers, Tune hubs, powder coated CX-Rays spokes in the color of your choice, impractically light and expensive bottle cages, etc.

    tools, work stand.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
