Shimano M520 SPD pedals and Shimano M077 shoes. Well under your budget. :) I'm finding them less hassle than the clips and straps to get into, which surprised me, and no "oops I didn't unclip" comedy moments (yet).

But if my insurance cheque comes in before Xmas (unlikely) a pair of Zipp 303's.


Zipp 303’s it is then! After nearly two years and two major operations on my arm I’ve just settled with the insurance company of the driver who knocked me down for a rather large sum. Best Xmas present ever. Now, has anyone seen any good deals on Colnago C59 frames...

Nothing for myself as I recently treated myself to a carbon seatpost and a secondhand pair of Kysrium Elite's, but my wife is buying me a bike fit at Cadence Sport. Really looking forward to that.

The blue Allez got me from 4th Cat to 2nd Cat this year. The Canyon is a reward for that, as well as a recent promotion (and pay rise!) at work. It's the only road bike I've ever ridden. I think I'm going to be pretty happy with the upgrade!

:D lots of treats guys!
Well I picked up my garmin 500 with HR & Cad yesterday + the boardman pro carbon lid !
Been playing with the garmin most of the day and very very happy with the purchase, even on the trainer it gives you so much data.
