Shortest time/lifespan of a new component on your bike

I recently had to replace my rear tyre after 1,700+km. For me, I was disappointed to be replacing a new tyre after such a short period of time. So this started me thinking on my ride today...

What is the shortest amount of time you've have a new component on your bike before you've had to replace it. The component could be a new tyre that you rode for 200k before getting a gash in the side wall. Or it would be a new water bottle that you put in your cage, then smoked a pothole after 15k only to see the water bottle go flying where you couldn't retrieve it.

Inner tubes don't count. Curious to hear your stories.
