I like shopping for bike stuff, what have you ordered?
I just order small things like a Hollow Tech II install tool. Then watch the neighbours go green with envy as the MASSIVE CRC box is delivered.
(I make sure I am in to receive the parcel, as the minuscule weight of the box if discovered, will give the game away)
And a Garmin 500 🙂 (can’t find the precipitation meter though !)Posted 5 years agocoolhandlukeSubscriber
An XTR bottom bracket, apparently. Was having second thoughts at the Paypal moment and was thinking “Hope ceramic, ahhhh!,” so closed the PayPal page thinking I’d think it over, no rush.
Email says I bought the XTR bottom bracket though.
Ho hum. Anyone want an XTR bottom bracket?Posted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Haven’t ordered anything for ages! Last thing was when we were at Kirroughtree… I was mourning the unavailability of the Fox Poacher jersey- I’ve had 2 of these, destroyed one in France, replaced it, and the replacement’s going all bobbly because I wear it so much. Brilliant shirts, but now unavailable, unless… You wander into the Brake Pad and they have one in the sale, in your size. LovelyPosted 5 years agoyunkiMember

Nowt this week (unless the Z150’s I’ve just bought count).
Last week I took delivery of a new chain, cassette and BB from Rose Bikes, a Hope chain ring and an Answer 780 DH bar.
Now trying to decide what wheels to buy….Mavic Crossline or Superstar set (Trizoid rear hib etc).Posted 5 years agociderinsportMember
This seems a bit boring, but a new chain , ring and cog for the SS is my little treat!
Want to press the button on a Bushnell EBB too, but can’t find the courage to spend £90 to replace something that works, just not as well as the one I want!
What have you ordered that didn’t really need to be ordered?Posted 5 years agotrail_ratMember
600 quid rose bike order
Some tools as i binned some that were beyond good use
Tacx Wheel jig
Shimano crank tool and chain tool
Bfo pedal spanner
A handle bar holder – stop them spinning when on the stand
A spreader tool for pistons
Magnetic small parts tray
Xt 10 spd shifter and mech chain and cassette for the mrs bike
Deore chainset , hollowpin chain , cassette , sp41 outer , teflon inners ,spokes and nipples for servicing a mates bike – he brought it round for a new bb – but rings and drive train were **** – and he put his rear hub together wrong and hadnt locked the cones – the rear wheel was also like a square due to oem nipples snapping.
Giant bowery for the self same mate on its waynfrom the classifieds
Next week i shall order a genisis day one alfine 8 for the mrs commuterPosted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Because of this thread I just bought another set of Wellgo MG1 pedals, for the cross bike (yes I know flats on a crosser isn’t right, but neither is a leg held on with bolts).
Hmmmm what can I buy now. Well there’s a rather expensive looking ebay auction ticking away…Posted 5 years agorelliott6879Member
Gold Hope headset and black Space Doctors (plus a £2 Kenda innertube to take it over the £75 threshold!) ordered from CRC at 4:34 this morning when I couldn’t sleep! Used the ‘YES’ voucher code and the whole lot came in at £69.26 delivered, can’t grumble at that.
The only problem now is that I keep logging on to CRC when I’m supposed to be working to see if my order has changed from ‘Processing’ to ‘Dispatched’… I hate waiting for stuff!Posted 5 years agoPJM1974Member
I’ve been busy – despite being off the bike since the 21st Feb for post shoulder op recovery I’ve bought a few things:
Hope Tech brakes x2
A LoCo service for bike #2s Fox Float
Blackspire Stinger chain device
A pair fo Spesh Comp shoes for spinning classes
A pair of Panaracer Rampage tyres
Clarks lock on grips for bike #2
A pair of 661 gloves
A set of Horst link bearings and fitting for bike #2
I’ve caught up on maintenence…the leaky negative spring on my hardtail’s Pikes has been fixed and stepson 2 has had a new bike built for him. All the other bikes are as good as new aside from some fork fettling that remains to be done.Posted 5 years agobigblackshedSubscriber
I’m hovering over the buy button on a Ragley Blue Pig frame. As soon as I do, an avalanche of buy buttons will appear, every other component required to complete it.
I’m waiting for a reasonably priced XT groupset to come in to stock somewhere. I really hate waiting and without the groupset I wouldn’t be able to get on with building it.Posted 5 years ago
