    So what did you get for CHRISTMAS???

    bike related or otherwise, what cool stuff did everyone end up getting? and since it's the spirit of the season, did anyone GIVE anything cool?

    i got an Avid BB7 front brake to finish off my SS Rock Lobster along with some tubes and a sweet Izumi bib. it's really all i asked for so i'm happy! how about you?

    oh, and Jesus!

    I got a great Christmas gift - the enormous smile on my 13 y.o. daughter's face when she got the gift beyond her imagining - her own laptop computer. Then, while it was charging, we took the mtn bikes out for a nice day offroad.

    A new Cateye LED light, a balaclava, gloves, a new crankset for the hybrid, and a new laptop which won't arrive until next week. Plus I got some nice non-cycling clothing which is great.

    $100 Gift Certificate from Nashbar.

    Yeah I know that's like removing a cup of water from the ocean to lower it's level but every little bit helps.

    A pair of Filson shelter cloth pants, the most versatile bicycle commuting trousers I've found. Oh, and a toothbrush. Destined for eventual use as a bike cleaning tool

    $4000.

    But the kicker is that I can't spend it - have to put every cent into a Roth IRA. That's ok though, because then I can take the money I've been saving to put into the Roth and spend it! Even though the responsible thing would be to save it and put into next year's Roth, but that's way to responsible for me.

    lot of beer-related stuff (shirts, pub mats, etc.); toothbrush heads (for my 'lectric toothbrush); a 1924 book of travel-themed poetry; a March 5, 1925 dessert menu from the RMS Mauretania; a 4 GB iPod nano (black, of course); and a $50 gift card to the LBS.

    my best friend bought his wife a 2005 Bianchi Bergamo. she didn't like the orange colour of the '06.

    PI arm and knee warmers, PI booties (not sure if I can use them in SoCal, but....) and a crap load of cash and gift certificates. It was a good Christmas.

    A Primal Wear Rolling Stones Steel Wheels Tour Jersey, and a pair of Stones Hot Licks cycling socks (my first pair of real cycling socks, why haven't I tried these things earlier?). $50 cash and a $10 off coupon for the local Sun and Ski Sports, which I see turning into more neat socks tomorrow ....

    I had a good Christmas. I got a Dremel, small air compressor, cordless drill, digital camera, Garmin Legend C, Dura Ace Track Cog+lockring (wOOt), stuff for my iPod. I gave my Dad a Grateful Dead calender, sister gift cards to iTunes (she got an iPod), brother a gift card to Borders, mom a GE Food Chopper (pretty cool little thing).

    Wife is awesome. she hooked up some tights, shorts, some mtb style shorts with the tight inner liner, a jersey, some gloves, couple pairs of socks, helmet, degreaser, lube and a chain cleaning kit and a repair manual I wanted too. And to top it off, she's excited about what might be added to the return section on Nashbar after xmas. Tomorrow we are gonna go to the local stores for mark downs on cycle stuff. More goodies I hope. Then I got a video iPod and a new cell phone from her too.

    Its the kids first bike and helmet for x-mas too. Bike x-mas in the house

    How I miss that. Christmas without children around can never be the same for me. It's good that you appreciate it as it is gone far too quickly and one day you wake up and you're no longer young and your wee girl is now fortyfive years of age.
