2012 - Your "BEST BUY".
Mine? Got to be the Crack'n'fail CAAD10
Mentions in dispatches for the Endura Convert Softshell and Shimano MO77 shoes (bought in the CRC sale for £25 - utter bargain).

The Paul Milnes frame I bagged on ebay combined with the Planet X carbon forks which by happenchance had an exact colour match, and the full 105 groupset from Merlin for less than £280. It built up into the sweetest riding bike - far greater than the sum of it's humble parts.

Top place has to go to the Enduro Ba Ba from SITS at £25, close 2nd their MT500 Jacket oh and the Hope hoops SP-XC3, and their stealth race Evo XC2 brakes.

Hmm.. Probably a close call between the Craft Extreme base, DHB pro aeron bibs. And then the Garmin*.
With, quelle suprise the Bianchi in joint 3rd or even 4th. Don't mean to sound ungratefull but I really, really like it for what it is and what it allows me to do, but I just haven't fallen in love with it and having experienced the latter with the ASR-5 I feel disappointed in myself.
* I want to add the Lumenator but haven't used it yet for more than 30 mins.

My Bonty tubeless kit - no more punctures plus more grip. My Fox gloves (on special) - better feel, less blisters. New Giro Xar helmet - lightest, airiest, best-fitting helmet I've ever owned (with 35% off the price!)

And finally 'discovering' merino base layers - a revelation...

Endura Stealth jacket comes second, but the winner is the Syntace Superlock2 seatpost clamp.
The cam is the right shape so clamps tight with no effort, good material choice and best of all a rubber seal that keeps the mud out of the frame

My £89.99 Endura Stealth jacket turned up on Friday (nice one Rutland). Only done a couple of shortish road rides in it but I think it's going to prove a very good buy.

Good to see sense prevailing and you haven't gone down the roadie route of buying expensive shit Italian clothing.
Endura British and best :-)

The Italian sizing puts me off, more than anything. 6'2" bloke of medium build = XXXL in wop sizing. Ridiculous.

Endura is Scottish, so has to take into account the natives predilection for deep fried pizza!
