Just curious, what was the last item you bought for your bike? It can be a component, clothing, tools, lubes, whatever.

VistaLight rear flasher with three lighting options; constant on, flashing and disco zig-zag back & forth. Yesterday at approx. 3pm.

You work for a distributor?

Deda Newton bar and stem combo.

Sweetest setup I have ever ridden.

Third attempt to find one I don't hate. What do you do with old saddles you can't return anyway?

I too, have many saddles that my butt just hates, as do many other riders I'm sure. Perhaps this is an opportunity to list and trade seats, stems, bars, pedals, etc... with others that have a bunch of stuff that they personally just don't like. Heck, I have a couple of complete bikes that I would swap if values were similar.

Cinelli adaptor for stem to change from threaded to ahead-style stem, TTT mutant stem, and ITM millenium bar. Now everything is color-coordinated and looks cool.....and I'm a happy boy.

Dura-ace STI shifters and Cinelli bar tape. Pretty sweet feeling on my hands.

The last thing I bought for my bike was a new bike :D. Pick up my Al Marinoni this week. Yes!

I just ordered jersey and a pair of cycling shorts from Performance.
I swore I'd never do business with them again, but at those prices I couldn't resist, $29 for a Bellwether Coolmax jersey and $54 for Hind shorts. My LBS price is $79 just for shorts. No wonder Performance stays in business.

Prior to that it was covers for my Look cleats. Maybe my cleats will last longer if I start using them. Might come in handy if I have to do that long walk home. I also purchased two Blackburn water bottle cages so both cages will be the same color.

And...big spender that I am, two weeks ago: New tires (Conti GP 3000 700X23) Velox rim tape, brake pads, handlebar tape, water bottle.

I should be set for the summer, unless I slash a tire...
