    A seven speed cassette for my eight speed bicycle. I had assumed it was seven when I got it and just hadn't realised it was eight speed despite riding it for some months and it having an '8' clearly printed on the alivio shifter pod thingy. I didn't realise until I slid the shiny new cassette onto the freehub and noticed the gap.
    '........oh... my bike's got 8 gears..doh.' :blush:

    A radio control 4WD nitro truck....at a time when i was desperate for something to interest me.
    £550......1 summers serious use, 1 summers occasional use and its sat in my cupboard ever since, reminding me i really brought it for the wrong reasons :blush:

    But...the first year gave me some interest and enjoyment, so not quite a complete waste.

    it would be that stoopid bar compass I bought that points north but indicates that it is pointing south.

    That and a cut n' shut Escort xr3i from some scumbag on bread n' cheese hill...bastard.

    I once bought something called a "Backswing" which allows you to flip yourself inverted (because, she asserted, it gives me a heavenly feeling), it should have cost £200 but I just left it at the next digs I was in without paying for it.
