    Christmas List

    All I want for Christmas is...

    A new Baclava

    Goofy looking rain pants
    http://www.rainlegs.co.uk/

    A new helmet--Bell Metro.

    I got to say that of all the gifts I've gotten over the years, the most fun ones are for cycling.

    You need a longer list. Mine had about 20 cycling items.

    I mean a balaclava but I'll take some baklava, too! That's why I never could pronounce this word--too much similarity with the dessert.

    The goofy-looking rainpaints actually would work very well; that's exactly the spot on my legs that get the most wet!

    The only "fun" cycling gift I ever got was Tireflys, but was disappointed that they didn't really work very well. They didn't stay on when moving, only when bumped. Replacing batteries didn't seem to help.

    I was thinking last night that it would be fun to have an automatic shed door opener with the remote on my bars so I could open the door for myself as I approached! I guess if we had a real garage this would actually be a possibility!

    The Ditty Bops Bicycle Bikini calendar was a great gift idea last year, but unfortunately, it appears they've changed focus to vegetables(!) for 2007.

    You know you're a cyclist when you get a Bike Bikini calendar and spend more time looking at the bikes than the bikinis! (Or maybe you're just getting old! )

    Yes, the cyclist is a person in your neighborhood.

    He's a person that you'll meet each day.
    Damn you! Now I have that tune stuck in my head!

    Now we should all make suggestions to enhance the OP's Christmas list.

    1) CSC Team Jersey
    2) Assos bib shorts
    3) Rack trunk
    4) New wheelset
    5) Itunes gift card.
    6) Neck gaiter

    That's all I can remember from my list. Being that my wife's budget for me is $200 I think that #2 and #4 are out.

    I only asked for a couple non cycling items this year; a fleece jacket and going to Disneyland with the family for a day.
    Brilliant!

    Peace on Earth...

    but I'll probably end up getting some socks & underwear.
    Don't confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

    Mostly I just want this rack. Nice and small, but perfect for my cross bike.

    I already finished and spent the last week riding my Christmas present/winter project road bike, then today I picked up a Burley Rockpoint jacket that I'd been wanting to try...so my Christmas list is kaput and it isn't even December - so I guess I need to add to the list:

    New SS winter bike. Thinking a One-Way, or maybe something with flat bars.
    Of course if I get another bike, I'll need a new Brooks and pedals.
    New light - I really want to try one of them Planet Bike Alias HIDs
    New parts for the Bianchi xcross - cassette, compact crank.
    New parts for the Fuji World touring bike - bar end shifters, brake levers.

    Or, since I just got a new flat screen TV, a new bed and spent $1300 fixing what needed fixed on my truck, maybe I'll just relax and say that Santa already came for me and save my money to get the bike stuff I want after Christmas.

    I just emailed part of my list off to "santa." Seems like I didn't really need anything. So I just selected some items that would be nice to have.

    Zinn repair books, more T & C tires, mountain bike shoes, avid brakes, ultra sensor shorts.

    I asked for a book, a new bike, and a repair stand.

    I'm crossing my fingers

    Unfortunately I've already spent up the next 2 Christmasses, but I am hoping to get a truing stand. I'm getting Zinn's road book out of the library.
