I got a cordless Cateye speedo for my Fondriest and some spd pedals for my training bike. Also bought a book on Endurance training.

Oooh, bike porn!


I've just stroked my new seat post ... it's a Miche Super Type ... on special offer at www.oldhamcyclecentre.co.uk, only £19.99 .

It's a thing of beauty ... black, ultra lightweight (but NOT carbon fibre - aluminium), very aerodynamic ... oooh....

We've also just ordered (again from oldhamcylecentre) a Gist Fluid turbo trainer to keep us amused during those cold winter days ....

Oooh... now lets talk about shiny aluminium ....

Er, some winter longs.

ooooooh... I emailed Newline at the weekend asking about the price of their spinning shorts (for turbo training) but they haven't replied to me yet.

Habe you worn them yet (serious kit testing question, not a 'lets talk about men's underwear'question).


Honest.

LizzyB - Not worn the longs yet, lazy me, but I bought the spinning shorts & top for the gym. Very good kit indeed ! Shorts are more sturdy than the light lycra you usually get.
Can't remember how much they were though. Doh !

Well actually that's only 1/2 true; I bought a bike computer but it was for a present for a friend.

Well seeing the thread made me think about what I have bought for sports this year and now I realise that this is probably an illness - help me!

List.
1 MTB Cannondale
1 pair cycling shoes
1 cycling helmet
1 bike pump
1 triathlon suit
1 swimming trunks
3 running vests
1 running shorts
2 running shorts (cyclist style)
2 full length running tights
1 below knee running tights
2 short sleeved running shirts
2 long sleeved running shirts

1 cycling shirt

1 pair Gel Kayanos
1 pair Saucony Jazz (big mistake)
1 pair DS Racers
2 pairs running socks
1 pair sunglasses for running
Assorted books and magazines


I'm hiding under a mound of sports equipment. It's the only place my bank manager can't find me.
