Your Most Recent Cycling-related Purchase

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Maybe not to the OP on "purchase," but I cashed in some American Express Rewards to get a CycleOps Fluid2 trainer.
