Anyone Find Good Cycling Related Christmas Deals??

Just wondering what kind of online deals people are finding. I bought a garmin 405 last week to replace my polar which has been giving me problems, 2 high end polar to bite the dust.. Post any good deals, found my polar at 55% off..

bonktown.com always has good deals. Lately, they've been having some good cycling-specific stuff (as opposed to their normal triathlon-mix with other, non-useful-to-me stuff).

I don't know if this is technically cycling related. But I really enjoy riding and photography. I have been looking at a Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX5 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...00_i00_details as my bike camera. Amazon had a one day special Friday $269.00. Merry Christmas to me.

Fitness Resource stores are getting out of the bike business and dumping their stock of Jamis. Prices are 50-55% off.

primal had (emphasis on had) a deal over thanksgiving weekend that was 50% off select items (some of them already moderately discounted). Picked up a couple of jerseys, a t-shirt, some booties, and some socks.

I think I'm pretty set on jerseys at this point - especially with another one coming in Jan 1 from the NC ADA Resolution Ride.

I could still use: a good wireless cycling computer w/HR & Cadence; better dyno light; knee warmers or bib knickers; midweight gloves.

I mean... you know, in case my wife happens to be reading.

Yeah, offering Zipp 404's for half-price on Wednesday was insane! I was tempted to buy a set for $1150, ride 'em for a while, then sell them for $1500 on eBay at the end of Spring...

Raced on zipp 404's - clyde version a few years back and they had the ceramic bearings and were the fastest wheels I ever rode..

Thanks for the tip on the water bottles, I got 6 of them to share with my wife. They came out to be less than $5 apiece after shipping!
