    And came away with a set of Mavic Ksyrium Pro Disc wheels. 😳

    I got a text saying some (free) replacement decals had arrived in the shop. As a result of this I now own a custom built Santa Cruz Chameleon 😳

    18 months ago I went into a (different) shop to buy some Mtb tubes. Ended up with a carbon road bike, and some tubes.

    Salesmans dream? Moi?

    My mum sent my stepdad out for a heater once and he came back with a kayak.

    I was sent out once from hospital to Mothercare to buy premature baby clothing and nappies, plus mothering clothing. I accidentally went to a bike shop and bought a CX bike.

    Congratulations! You are a terrible person πŸ˜†

    My dad got sent home when my older brother was born, to get some extra clothes. He came back with a 6 foot tall teddy bear, which has blighted my brother’s entire life and is currently taking up almost all of the one wardrobe in his new flat

    Once went out for a tin of paint to homebase and came back with a BMW 330 Ci M-sport.

    went out for a pint of milk and a few other bits came back 5 weeks later after touring Europe

    Went for a pizza once, bought a Santa Cruz frame in the place next door.

    It really is a good job I have no money, I would get in all sorts of pickles.

    That’s what she said. Using different words though. Still, she’d just had a C section so couldn’t really get me πŸ™‚

    A friend’s dad was pootling about on the beach in Rhosneigr, Anglesey. He noticed a bit of a gathering going on, joined in and came back with a house. Fred Williams RIP, what a star.

    Out of interest how much were they? Any idea on weight? My Aksium disc do the job but are a bit lardy at almost 2kg.

    Was that so he could have his kayak and heat it?

    I know of a chap who went off to on a Friday afternoon to drop some beer off at Crewe for a railtour going to Inverness overnight. He returned home Sunday…..
    It was even mentioned in his divorce papers as unreasonable behaviour!

    It’s not a physical bike shop but I did go onto the Planet-X website once for a pair of tyres and left with an order for a Kaffenback placed.

    In also, and this is a serious middle class post, went to the wine shop for a cheap bottle of red for a party and ended up leaving with a Β£200 bottle of Dom Ruinart vintage Champagne…and a bottle of premier cru Bordeaux. Both were bloody lovely drop though…

    I was working on a site once where the foreman sent the “lad” to the shop for 20 B&H and if they haven’t got them get me anything…….
    He came back with a pork pie!

    I went out to by a small car cheap to run car, and came back with 2.5l mondeo estate. In my defence i had been rather taken with a mustang.

    My friend went in to his local Bike shop for some waterproof gloves and came out with a Chameleon frame!! πŸ˜†

    Went to a wheel place to get a price for refurbishing the wheels on our car, ended up spending £20k at the car dealers down the road on another car, which saved me £300 on the refurb 😯
    Mate went to the LBS to get a wheel trued and came home with a Whyte 29 er full suss thing…………
    Another went to the same shop for a ‘ shop birthday open night’ Wanted a new crash hat, came out with a Giant road bike……..

    Blimey, I just looked up the price of those wheels. Β£791.99 at CRC to save about 400g over the wheels I currently have. I won’t be buying those.

    Went to a wedding up north and came back with a Specialized Enduro.

    Sent Kevin for his eyes testing and he came back with a bigger television.

    11 years ago I went to the UK for 3-months to earn some extra cash to help me pay for my Uni.

    It’s been quite long “three months”… I got happily married, bought a house, have a daughter, got addicted from riding bikes, played bass with some bands around the country, got good job…

    … still haven’t come back… πŸ˜†

    Oscillate Wildly, it isn’t I’m afraid, mine is one of the NOS 26″ frames (but still fit 27.5 wheels) they sold off a couple of months ago. The first plan was to just get the frame & headset and transfer everything over from my single speed, adding X1 gears I already had and leave it at that (that was the initial justification anyway) but for many and various contrived reasons I ended up adding a 150mm Pike, reverb, cranks, carbon bars, a 142×12 rear axle, new tyres and because when I went to pick it up and ride it home, my front light battery was dead, a new light 😳

    The one you are talking about rather puzzled me, why would you spend, what must be getting up for, Β£3k on components (BOS deville, 11 speed XTR (inc brakes), reverb, carbon raceface bars & cranks and Mavic enduro WTS wheels) for an Alu hardtail, as nice as it is. To each their own I guess, they must REALLY like Chameleons

    (I should say that I didnt spend anywhere near that on the bits for mine, serious web discount hunting was done for those…)

    There is some logic to this one.

    haha fair enough! I had a feeling it would be you, what with your already exquisite collection of SC πŸ™‚

    I know what you mean though you’d have to have a serious love of hardtails/ a hell of a lot of money to spend that on one

    was rather nice mind!

    I too have fallen foul of this. Went to the garage with an ostensibly broken lightbulb and possibly to maybe get a basic wagon. Came home sheepishly having bought an RS4 Avant….

    I went for a 5 arm chainring and ended up with a freeride bike.

    With a 4 arm chainset, so that solved the problem nicely πŸ™‚

    Rather ominously, my local specialized concept store has just posted on Facebook that the only 2015 s-works demo 8 (the asymmetric front triangle one) in Europe is currently in the shop….
