    [OT] Because I always built up my own bikes from carefully sourced parts, I don't think I ever spent as much as some people on bikes, but I've really stopped buying bikes and bike parts since my son was born four years ago. It's also because I realised that although I have a fair number of bikes for several different purposes, only 3 or 4 of them are actually able to be ridden at any one time, and at least the same number are 'waiting to be rebuilt' or 'needing repair'... I tend to cycle into work on my Brompton (folding bike) or my single speed, and use my ice-bike (very simple steel MTB with titanium-studded tyres) in winter. And I train and do the occasional triathlon on my TT bike. I don't race XC anymore or have the time for long road rides or touring... [/OT]

    Guilty here. Here is a list of the guitars that I went through in the last 5 years:
    Huss & Dalton TDM
    Martin D18
    Collings D2H
    Froggy Bottom
    Taylor 916CE
    ...then settled on Taylor 614CE.
    Best stage guitar, best for live performance.

    Are you making a solo break, or getting lapped? [​IMG]

    What I was wearing almost ten years ago...

    At the top of a steep climb in the Yorkshire Dales in England. It was a hotter day and I really shouldn't have worn the blue LS top under my club top.

    Failed break. A parent of a fellow student gave me an SRM and Damn near has a heart attack when he saw that my peak sprint watts were like 1450 at sub 150 lbs haha.

    This is nice. I like everything (including the socks btw) except for the shirt collar which I feel would look better with longer points and a higher collar band but that may just be due to personal preference.

    Felt it could have gone either way. The knit kinds plays more with the casual side, so I figured the obcd would play well here.

    Edit: Oh gosh, I misunderstood. I thought you were referring to a spread collar. Oy. Yeah, I see what you mean now. I agree that this collar is much more informal. I think it could have gone either way. I'll try it that way next time I wear this getup. I think I have a similar shirt with longer points for the button down collar.
