Peter Mooney bikes sure are nice, aren't they?

I got a print (wall hanging) from my wife, made my an artist friend of ours. I got another print from my daughter. Both are of bikes, of course.

Same here. I finally managed to convince my mom to stop giving me gifts on my birthday and Christmas, because I don't really need anything, and every time she does it just reinforces that she has no idea what sort of person I am now. She knows I love bicycles, and knows which LBS I go to, so she could just go there and tell them she's buying a gift for me, and they'd know what things I wanted/my clothing size, etc. Oh well. At least she seems to like the handknit socks and earrings I made her - she keeps asking when I'll make her more.

Books are a pretty safe Xmas gift for me. This year I received:
- Tour De France 100
- The Elite Bicycle
- At Speed (Mark Cavendish)

As for cycling gear, I don't need much of anything. I got myself a Leyzne mini-pump/CO2 inflator on sale.

For bikes, I'm in a n-1 stage. Looking to thin the herd.

I got a bright yellow helmet cover, some toe clips, and one of those clip-on chain cleaners. It actually works really well and it's so nice not having to take the chain off.

I got a Feedback Sports Pro-Elite Work Stand w/ tote bag and a Flop Stop. I also got some LG toe covers.

I may never be able to ride like a pro, but now I can look like I wrench like one.

You should post that bike in the hot or not thread. Awesome.

How do you like the BB trunk bag? I have the small one and I like it, but I've been thinking about getting that one.

I got a KHS CX300....



Too bad the weather sucks right now. I did get to ride it for a few miles the other day and it beat the heck out of my old mountain bike.

A copy of the Bike Snob NYC's first book. I guess it's stuff derived from his blog.

Seems like I'm always needing bike stuff. Parents got me a $100 Nashbar card, which I blew it all on a nice work stand. FINALLY I can do maintenance and cleaning without having the bike upside down or on some sort of cobbled together wooden contraption to raise the rear wheel off the ground.
