Odd for me because I'm usually such a cheapskate, but I've been on a buying spree for the past month and I think and pray that I'm finally done.

The list:
2 jerseys
2 pairs of shorts
3 pairs of socks
2 head sweats
1 pair of Pearl Izumi road shoes (they're sweet!)
2 jerseys for the girlfriend
1 new bike lock for the commuter
1 old road bike (91 Specialized Sirrus -got a deal and it's kinda cool)
Tifosi glasses w/ interchangable lenses
1 Giro helmet (necessary - mushed my old one against a tree last month )

The good news - I'm single - don't have to account for it to anybody .

Ain't it fun? Anybody else doing some fun shopping?

Um, yeah... I've heard that before - from multiple girlfriends . But, mostly I responded to this post because I'd like to keep this thread alive and see what people are buying and why.

BTW - An HRM as been haunting my dreams lately. Hmmm......

Yea my cycling buying spree is over now as well. Im saving up for a machine now so the only dime i spend on cycling is when parts break or for things that wear when they do
