What should I treat myself to?

Just found out that work have been underpaying me for the last couple of years so on payday, as well as a slight pay rise I'll be getting a rather substantial amount of back-pay :smile: :laugh:

My dilemma is this; what could/should I treat myself to?

I'ce planned on a few goodies for the car, a Garmin Edge 500 Black and some ceramic bearings for my Racing Zeros (don't care if they make me go faster - I want 'em :smile:)

At the moment I can't think of anything bike related that I "need" (although I was contemplating an Orca frameset but the wife will definitely notice and ask too many questions!!).

I'll have around £2.5k to play with - what would you buy?

Well if it was not really bike related, as you have all you need, I would buy some gym equipment for the house for core training ~ god changed days, this time last year it would have been handbags and shoes :biggrin:

Some nice bike clothing kit...you can never have enough......

SR11 isn't as nice as DA 7400 you know - could swap....... might not fit, but you get real pedigree...... (PS not that I would swap my DA............heh heh......) :smile:


OK what Bling carbon wheels look exactly the same as you have now ???? Get them........:biggrin:

Wheels are a possibility - although they'd have to be prett good to beat my current Racing Zeros.

Holiday = no dice at present - 2 kids, one almost 4, the other one's just a couple of months so Mrs F wouldn't really have a holiday, just somewhere different for the same old routine.

Why would I wqant to swap all that gorgeous carbon fibre SR11 for some fishing kit|?

Garmin Edge 705 is too big and hefty for my likeing - the 500 does everything I need and it's comparatively compact (I very rarely ride without looking up the route on a map and I have satnav on my phone for emergencies anyway)

I am considering P/Xing my car (S-Type Jag) for an XJ Jag (love the shape of them!) or else getting a complete leather interior, new stereo and brake discs for the old car.

Cycle clothing is a distinct possibility - so long as it's red :biggrin: I may even try some Assos stuff.

Also, I have to be fairly careful waht I buy myself as my birthday is coming up soon and the Mrs is already trying to get ideas out of me :biggrin: :biggrin:
