    Too much...Wheels, brake pads, tyres, tubes, lube, degreaser, tools, clothes, pedals, chain rings, cassattes, chains...It's just one big bottomless pit...Still it's all fun.

    Not a lot really. Got a set of XT hubs with DT 4.2 rims and DT comp spokes, that would be about £200. A set of XTR shifters, that would be another £100.Lucky I work for a parts distributor, would never be able to actually afford to pay proper prices.
