Just because you have money you don't have to spend/waste it, you could just save it you know.
Put it in the bank until you really need 200 pounds.
guys this money is completely spendable, I have savings so Im not to fussed on what I spend it on, the only rule is it has to be cool . A hd monitor and a blu ray drive looks promising at the moment but it'd be cool to see what others bring to the table
Or just save it for things like bills. I hate bills.
I have no bills mate, actually Im ok for cash in generall, this £200 is just for kicks
Racing wheel if u play racing games
A bike(a good used one)
Take your lady/dude to dinner
Take the aforementioned to an awesome amusement park
Take yourself to two awesome amusement parks
Give it to me and I'll tell you what cool stuff I did with it
:nerd: I LOLed
a bike..... well I did used to ride for cannondale, maybe I could get a 24" wheeled bmx for around that price, or a 20" trials bike, in saying that Im 27 now and not the fittest dude around lol, I dont have a lady phatkat so no amusement parks or dinner out for me dude
You could put it towards my wallet appeal.
Or a decent sound card.
I'm 31, and I ride the hell out of my bikes. If I burst an aorta doing that, then so be it. I love it, and will do it til I can't any more.
No lady, then I refer you to the fourth thing on my list.
Buy some pure silver bullion
or buy gold, the price is only going to go up. good investment in my book.
lol, I found this and kind of liking it, its £60 overbudget but looks so cool, what do you think
Looks good! I'm not a jumper/trickster, but that's a good start point. There's no reason to not buy a good bike, there is always a good use for them, secondary transport or exercise, or both. That's how my Giant started, a basic bike, then I replaced whatever broke or was too weak. Now, the frame is the only stock part.
I also saw this dude on the page, you could get two of 'em... Maybe make a tandem...:nerd:
I'll post a couple gratuitous pics of my bikes...
The Giant, '08 Boulder SE. Not a great pic, but I don't feel like takin another one yet.
Tora fork with U-turn(LOVE it-80mm-160mm), MRP Bash guard(already saved ma a ring gear or two), TruVativ Hussefelt bars, Shimano shifter/lever combo with Shimano derailleurs and Cane Creek brakes(they'll flip your ass over quick as hell), Shimano 22-32-44 crank and 11-34 cassette, Mavic CrossLand wheels and hubs(oooh, they are the shizz), Specialized seat and post, Salsa SS skewers, Specialized stem and Cane Creek S-3 headset...
The Specialized, '09 Rockhopper 29er Expert.
8" front and 7" rear discs, TruVativ FireX 22-32-44 crank w/hollow spindle, TruVativ Stylo bars and stem and post, ODI lock-on Rogue grips(after lock ons, nothing else will do!!!), Profile bar ends, everything else is stock; Tora 29er fork with air spring and damping adj./lockout, Tektro Auriga Comp hydraulic brakes, etc. This is my main bike, though both are my babies.
I can't leave anything in stock form. I hated the way Specialized painted the 29er in '09, it was too gay, so I fixed it temporarily. It's getting painted this winter during annual teardown, prolly flat black like the Giant. I like the "murdered out" look....
An SSD for the OS, seriously it's the best upgrade I made in YEARS.
I'd save it.
