Has to be my front cable hope disk & hub, no one else had one that I saw, ordered it as soon as I saw it in MBUK, £180, plus new rims. cost half as much as my bike did new :)

Turned up at a race in the sidlaws and had a small crowd around my bike, total poser, felt great.

- completely blew it by not managing to finish the race due to cramp :oops: .

I seem to recall buying one of those first generation Cateye wireless computers to put on my Dawes Wildcat. Compared with now it looked big enough to pick up TV pictures. It survived serval crashes on the ridiculously too big Dawes (23.5") and spent ten years on my Kili Flyer Comp. It lives on today and graces my wife's Rock Lobster!

either my pace and middleburn chainrings, or getting my rear wheel rerimmed with a mavic M400... that puppy had eyelets and everything.

when young i was prone to silly upgrades - dumping perfectly good components for ones a single groupset above them etc etc :(

Second hand DX thumbies that i bought from a guy at school for £5. They even came with blue ano bolts which matched my bike perfectly. He was suprised i even wanted them as he'd just upgraded to some fancy rapidfire jobbies :lol:

Later, some birthday money allowed me to replace my trashed machine built rims (which the LBS could just no longer true) with Mavic 231 rims and some STX RC hubs. They were sooooo light (i thought at the time) and turned my obese steed into a veritable whippet.
