    Grant Fondo 'Real Life, and Postcard Views, Europe Endless'

    90mm stem for a tenner. Hardly exotic but should be able to steer the bike, which is handy at times. Might also buy a Marin hybrid later but can't decide. Its a San Rafael, anyone got one?

    FishFright More wheels than sense

    Spa Cycles TD cranks , Stronglight ring and some chainring bolts. I really like their cranks and hope they stay as cheap and available for a long time.

    2 spokes for a Mavic Aksium wheel that came with the Ridley Damocles. I'm splashing out :okay:

    Depends on the levers. Ones that are too blunt to push under a tyre with a stiff bead, too brittle to lift a tough tyre and black so you play "hunt the lever" if one ever pings off just aren't worth it!

    Not blunt, bendy or black, so you probably can't have too many of those... :thumbsup:

    Edit: well, maybe when you can retile your house with them, that might be too many.

    Picked up this for a tenner in bargain books and feel so much more inspired already! The photography alone is stunning.
