Just ordered £291 worth of white DT aerolites spokes. Oh and some DT Ceramic hubs to go with, £630 the pair!
Whats the most obscene amount you have spent on a component?
Excluding bike 2006 Kona brought in 2007, £316 on a set of Rockshox reba races from CRC as recommended by quite a few on here along with a Raceface team jacket and new seatpost (xc deus) and a Syncros saddle had it delivered to work, my work mates now think iam mental.
Aah yes, White Aerolites, they're definitely pointless bling. You should have bought some spray paint, you can scratch the finish off with your finger nail!
DT190s are not particularly impressive hubs either IME, sorry!
Royce Ti BB, a beautiful piece of engineering...
£28 for a hose for the Juicy 3s that cost my £40. Normal hose, not fancy at all.

£1697 in Halfords last week
Car parts??? No one really should spend that much on a bike with them!
Mines my Ti29er frame which was trade so can't stick price up i'm afraid
Although i think that may be blitzed by my next....
£120 on some Ti skewers. Part of a £950 wheelset and I can't even get the feckers to stay inflated (see threads on Stans NoTubes!)
£90 on a carbon stem for roadbike was a bit rich I thought.
Rear wheel with Rohloff hub £750
Pair of second hand wheels from LBS with Rohloff hub. £550. I said "I'll have them !" before he had chance to tell me what rims and front hub it was.
FSA ceramic jockey wheels for Rohloff tensioner. £30
Nokon cables for Rohloff. £85
SRAM PC1 chain. £7. Destroyed it in one 70km muddy ride. That's 10p per km, or about the same running costs as my Land Rover on LPG.
£300 on a pair of Avid Codes
I generally don't buy bling and tend to get stuff 2nd hand
Ringle ti skewers back in the day. I'm glad I can't remember how much they were.
About €800 on my wheelset. DT 4.1 rims married to Tune hubs.
And £470 with my 10% discount when they had the supernova X7 lights on sale at Wiggle.
