You would think I'm tapering! My credit card seems to be burning a hole in the Internet!
Unfortunately I didn't delete the sale email from Performance Bike quickly enough, and things started catching my eye. Arrrgh! They got me!!! But they have good stuff on sale!!
First was this nice women's technical bike jersey for $25. I deliberated over the purple until I realized that I already have a long-sleeved purple bike jersey. I know it's not as neon-bright as Dawn prefers, but it proves I don't have a total prejudice against pink.
the Columbia Triathlon (Olympic distance) this coming May. It's much hillier than anything I usually ride on. Those hills killed me last year, and I'd really prefer to get up them a little more quickly and easily this year without burning out my quads. Yeah, yeah, I'll go find some hills to ride on later this spring, too. I hear training helps.
I bought the Ultegra model on sale ($65) rather than the Dura-Ace, in order to save $45. I hope I don't regret not spending enough! But I'll only use it for the one triathlon this year and then go back to my usual 11/23 cassette.
To go with the new cassette, I need the tools to swap it out with. I already have one wrench for it, I just needed the whip tool to take it off and on, but I thought I'd get a couple extra toys along with it. $15 for the set.
And then just so I wouldn't be the only one in the household to get new stuff, I pre-ordered the Lady and the Tramp 50th anniversary DVD from Disney for the girls. I think it was one of the first films I ever saw in a theater, although it was probably a considerable period of time after the 1955 release (seeing as I wasn't born yet then). I remember after that I had a little porcelain cocker spaniel figurine after that I treasured.
