My birthday is coming up, what should I ask for?

My 22nd B-day is May 29th and my parents, siblings, (future)in laws, and (soon-to-be)wife are all asking what i want. Help me make a list of stuff i need to further my cycling experience.

difficulty- has to be under $100 if possible. (some things in the $20-30 range would be better)

i already have a floor pump, frame pump, bike multi tool, a couple pairs of aerotech shorts, and a camelbak.

What should i ask for?!


i ride road, mountain, and i'm working toward buying a touring bike.

I can add more details if needed.

If you are mechanically minded and do your own repairs- A good quality set of Cone spanners. Will last you a life time and is the only tool for the job.
