So me and my last bike got creamed by a car last fall. I only ended up with a few small fractures in my neck vertibrae, a chipped wrist bone, and shit load of bruises. My bike on the other had faired a little worse than I did. The insurance companies have been a nightmare to work with, I decided to build up a TT/tri bike on a budget. Luckily most of my components from my G5 survived with only superficial scratches, and the insurance company did not confiscate them when they paid for property damages. So here is my list of parts/prices thus far.

Frame: Cervelo P3 size 54 (used) - $900
Wheels: Reynolds rear disc - $Free (given to me by a real good friend that recently went to go work for Sram.) I had to modify it to be 11sp compatible.
Front wheel is just the broken one from my wreck. Just a place holder for now.
Bar: Zipp Vuka Alumina - $55
Syntace C3 aero bars - already owned
Stem: Zipp Service Coarse SL 100mm - from wrecked bike
Rear Deraileur: Campagnolo Record 11 -from wrecked bike
Front Deraileur: Campagnolo Record 11 - from wrecked bike
Crank: Campagnolo Record 11 172.5/53x39- from wrecked bike
Cassette: Campagnolo Record 12-25 - from wrecked bike
Chain: Campagnolo Record - from wrecked bike
BB cups: Campagnolo Record - $15
Shifters: Campagnolo 11s aluminum TT shifters - $175
Brake levers: Campagnolo aluminum TT levers - $60
Pedals: Look Keo blades (cromoly) - $142
Saddle: Fizik arione tri 2 - from wrecked bike
Rear bottle mounts: x-lab super wing - $40 (used)
Aero bar bottle mount: x-lab torpedo - $17
Tires: Schwalbe Ultremo ZX (not shown) - $39/per
Bar Tape: Lizard skins 1.8 (gray, not shown) - $20

Current total: $1502

Not too shabby. I still need to get a front wheel, a longer seat post, and bottle cages. I haven't weighed it yet, but I will as soon as it is completed. It will definitely be nice to have a dedicated triathlon bike this year for my races (half-iron and olympic distances).

Wish I was on a budget as well, in other words you got yourself a really good TT bike :wink:
