I am starting to wonder.
That is the second spoke to go on the front in 2 weeks. Both times under braking. So, $80 for all new DT Swiss spokes and to get the wheel rebuilt. Then this morning, I got to work and went to turn off the rear light only to find it had abandoned ship at some point in the ride. $50 for a replacement. Plus the loss of 2 rechargeable batteries. I am out of chamois cream. $30 for some Aussie Butt cream. There goes $160 in a blink. A new set of tyres every 9 months or so. $80. I am keen on getting some merino base layers, but after seeing the price, I am thinking I will just drive to work in winter. Being a known tight arse doesn’t help.
Please, some one tell me it is worth the cost. Lucky I love riding.
