I've purchased some Avid Juicy Carbons, grips (boring), DMR V8's and a Fi'zi:k Tundra (very light but very hard) seat.

Just finished cleaning the Chris King aheadset. Pic taken just before I used my 'special' blue grease and put it all back together. Now it works better than new.

Point taken on the Tundra. Fortunately I wear cycling boxers so hopefully no pain!

Coming along nicely there, looking forward to seeing it finished.

Saddle doesn't look too bad compared to my I Fly, which is pretty much some plastic with some leather over the top. And no rails to flex!

Very nice, deserves some better pedals than the V8's though IMO.
