As I am new to cycle training (as opposed to trundling along on a £180 hybrid clunker) I am still reeling from paying £800 for a road bike, though it is verrrrrrrry nice.
So cheer me up by telling me how much you've spent.
Betcha there's some big spenders....

I'm new to Triathlon so I only spent £249 though once I added other cycling bits and pieces I ended up spending well over £300. What bike did you get anyway?

It's a Cannondale r500 feminine.
It's got a teeny weeny frame and tiny wheels.
It goes so fast compared to my old bike. But it doesn't like potholes much. Shame since Edinburgh is most potholed place on the planet.

£900 for a custom made frame of Columbus SLX with Campag Chorus on it in 1992. Mmmmmmmmmmmm. Still my favourite bike of all time. Not even my MTB is as nice.

Custom made eh? Sounds v nice.
When I got on my 'dale it could've been made for me though. These bikes built for girls are great.
I liked it so much I bought the MTB as well

Yes that’s a serious bit of kit Andy (very nice).

4 weeks ago I bought a Cannondale R800 2004 £1099 (with wheel upgrade to Mavic Kysrium Elite included)

This is my first bike and move into Tri, im not rich by any means but love nice things and just loved the look of the Cannondales from when I first saw them. Contrary to comments I got at the time of buying I don’t think the ride is harsh though have nothing to compare it to, I gather the wishbone rear forks on later Cannondale somewhat reduces the harshness though.

Andy and Will - are you considering getting them dirty at any point in the near future?

Bought a gorgeous Scott MTB in 1990 for £1200. Sold in in '92 for £600 to pay off my debts :o(

Saw a beauty at the recent Tri exhibition for £8995!

not to mention a 900cc engine.

And if I win it, who'll be my best friend, I wonder?

Will and Andy (and some of the others) I'm drooling. Why are bikes so beautiful?
24/02/2004 at 07:51
I think Andy is the winner so far - I hope you got a nice tough bike box to keep the ryan air baggage handlers at bay !!!
