What do you want from Santa this year?

Itís getting to be that season again.

I made up my list (in html format) and saved it to my wifeís desktop. Almost every link is to an online cycling catalog. I want more cycling shorts, tights, and socks for winter riding.

How about you?
Have you been a good little cyclist?
What do you want from Santa?

What I want for XMAS is to stop obsessing about more and more equipment and to start wearing out what I already have.

My sunnies are pretty scratched up. A new pair of sunglasses would do me nicely.

Bike touring stuff! Now that I've been biking consistently for a year or so, I'd like to try bicycle touring next spring. I'd like a new bike from Santa, but I think I'm going to have to lay out the cash for that once I have lots of new bicycle toys. Touring on a 15 year old Schwinn may not be the best idea.

I'm in need of new clothes so that will probably be most of what I get. My bike is still too new to me as of now to know what I want to change on it, but I've thought about getting clipless pedals. For once I don't have a list of electronic gadgets that I don't really need, like that palm pilot that's been sitting in the drawer for awhile. If anybody wants an M-100 Palm Pilot for really cheap, let me know.

As our 2 and a half year old dog was unfortunately killed in a road accident recently, we are giving each other a puppy Vizsla to be company for our other pup.

Other than that, I wouldn't mind a new set of wheels.

All I want for Christmas is more TIME to enjoy what I have now!

I wanna be able to climb the hills in the Santa Cruz Mtns better,

On the material side, I'm hoping for a Park Repair Stand, some lightweight tights for winter riding, and maybe another jersey.

I want the merlin Cielo frame for my bike.. I'm not greedy, I'll just take the frame rather then the whole bike. Think my 5yr will come through this christmas for me?

I would like to retire and open up a bike shop. This requires me winning the lottery for xmas.

My shop would be different though. All items sold at retail prices, but you'd get a reciept for a certain % going to charities that use cycling for fundraising such as MS. So not only would I not make a profit, I'd pass the tax deduction on to the customers.

what do you think?

New shoes and pedals(okay, well right now i don't have any bike shoes or pedals to clip into so I guess they wouldn't be new, just a first pair)

Also, I'd like to get my first bike trainer as well.

1) New, lighter clipless pedals and some knickers (don't laugh!!). I've got tights, but it's often too warm for them..

2) And Santa, bring me a magic pill to make climbing easier..

Chewa, so sorry about the dog (SOB). I wouldn't mind a puppy for Xmas myself. A coonhound puppy.

Also, since I had that accident last month, I need some repairs. I wanted a set of lighter wheels anyways, and I was planning to upgrade the components this winter, so how about all that? A nice set of, say, Cosmics and new campy components.

And a big sum of money so we can take off and go to Europe and see all the races from April to September.

And on the non cycling side, a really great set of cookwear.

And peace instead of war. War sucks canal water.

Well, I would like one of those hi-visibility, bright green windbreakers I see other cyclists with. I also wish I could catch the attention of a certain young lady I know Although it might be better to wait untill after Christmas as women can be expensive
