Two Ritchey saddles (one for MTB one for hack/commuter bike), and a pair of full finger Oakley gloves, OK these are not strictly bike specific, but for £13.95 from the Oakley store at Cheshire Oaks they're cheap enough to use on the bike, and if they get shredded they're cheaper than a lot of other full finger gloves out there.
Some second hand bars to replace my old Reetard ones which will snap sooner or later given the gouges I've taken out of them.
This afternoon, I'm going to order some oil, some grease and some Fenwicks. And a crappy style saddle clamp so that I can fit a proper saddle to the exercise bike
Some green Oury lock on grips and blue clamps.

Christ that pink on-one is a offence against human rights.
As for purchases - just cables. Although it is to get my Dew back on the road and possibly using it as a do-all get-around-and-training bike whilst I'm away working. I may fit a powertap to it...
I was abstaining and had been doing quite well since feb. However my forks broke so I sent them away for a repair and service. Then I decided as the bike was out of action and I was busy moving house I would drop my frame off to be powder coated.
Got a few bits to refurb my commuter as well. But since it's snowing again and they are gritting it can stay in the box until it warms up (June?)
A Titus Motolite .. direct from the states
loads of helicopter tape

This. Wanted to try out a steel road bike. Instead of Veloce there is a full Ultegra groupset and EA50/Fizik components. Can't wait to get it in my hands
