Did a lot of wheeling and dealing last year, so was determined to buy only the essentials this year. Was on eBay for a non bike related purchase and noticed very little money left in my PayPal, so I totted up what "essentials" I'd bought so far this year.

1 pair of grips, tubeless repair kit, 11spd quicklinks, 4 sets of brake pads, chain degreaser and lube, matte carbon frame cleaner, shock volume spacers, new knee pads, riding t-shirt, 2 pairs of gloves and 3 spokes.

Apart from the knee pads (which replaced a 7 year old, well used pair) nothing cost more than £30, but it still adds up to a decent amount.

What have you bought this year and do you dare tot it all up?

It's August so I've no recollection of what I've bought so far in 2017!! (A subconscious mental block I think :lol: ).

Recently bought a new 11 speed chain.

And an old road bike.

So yeah, just the essentials... :facepalm:
