May I ask what you do for a living?

It is not as much about what you do for a living as what you do with your money.

No other brakeset but the THM Fibula for a very unique frameset. Simply outstanding.

Bought Avid BB7 mechanical discs for my cross project. It's a Cannondale hybrid which currently has Shimano Deore hydraulics, but I can't use hydraulics with Ultegra shifters.

Got a new Bontrager RXL seatpost. Raised up my seatpost up a bit and the portion that was in the seat tube was all scuffed up... so I decided to buy a new one.

The guy at the LBS said "Oh, is it cyclocross season already?"

Holux GPS Sport 245

It's my first GPS for my bike, so it took me quite a while to figure it out. Riding my bike around my building in my cargo shorts and flip flops to save data.:eek:

For reference if someone else buys this, the software that came with it didn't work with Google maps. The version that came with it is 1.05. You must load 2.01, which you can easily find by searching on Google. Google changed the API key and the 1.05 won't work with it, you'll keep getting error messages. Once I figured this out, though (and reloaded about 3 times) it works like a charm.

Just in time for my first century tomorrow!

On the century ride the thing just shut off after 78 miles, losing all data! :eek: So I contacted the dealer I got it from in China, then decided to take it out again Monday for a nice ride around Hemlock and Conesus Lakes in NY, hoping to at least get some data. Unfortunately, going down a steep hill on a very broken up road the unit flew off its bracket (which is very unsatisfactory for holding it), bounced on the pavement a couple of times and into the brush. Took me quite a while to find it. It looked surprisingly good for the abuse it just took. Of course it has some scratches on it. So now I'm trying to get the dealer to give me a replacement, but they have no way of knowing if I didn't cause the issue by dropping it so I'm not sure if they'll take it back. Should've gotten a Garmin. D'oh!

Sold my Aeolus wheelset online so I ordered a matching Body 50mm carbon clincher front wheel to go with the Powertap rear wheel I bought earlier. Should be here in about a week. The service from Boyd has been really good considering the crosss-border shopping.

On sale at my LBS for $50

Had a bike fit done yesterday, hopefully that was money well spent. While I was there I bought some new cleats and an ISM Adamo saddle for the tt bike.

Today I installed a third bike tray on my bike rack. I can now easily transport three bikes and three people to races.

Just picked up some of this at the LBS because I'm lazy... Holy cats, it's like grease eraser! I used it on the cassette, couldn't be happier.

AK404 08-04-12 09:52 PM

A saddle bag!

Looks like the $$$ you saved went to getting some nice accessories.

ddeadserious 08-05-12 10:31 AM

Yes sir! I went back and forth over which model Tarmac to get, and in the end, it came down to the fact that I really wanted a frame with a matte finish, and the cheapest 2013 model that offered that was a bit out of my price range. Figured I'll keep the frame longer than the components and I can upgrade as needed. Got all of the accessories at my local Performance on sale, including the Garmin, which was a return. Bike arrives Tuesday, I am beyond excited to get it.

Ghost Ryder 08-05-12 10:54 AM

Tiagra isn't all that bad.(Finicky for me @ best) It will most def hold up a few years, or when you decide to upgrade.
Hopefully in those years the price of Di2 will come down!
