Hi guys, I was thinking about the money spent on touring and thought this would make an interesting thread. What items are so important that you're willing to spend extra money to buy a high end product? And on what things are you willing to cut corners?
SPEND money on: sleeping pad, saddle, shoes.
SAVE money on: helmet, pedals, gloves, fenders.
Just throwing that out there, not necessarily my opinion. I'll be interested to hear what everyone thinks.
