Hey guys, I'm hoping for some gear advice for you.
I'm getting married in a few months. My fiancee and I have been together for eight years and have already bought, remodeled and furnished a house, so we really don't need the typical wedding stuff like plates and toasters. In fact, we'd rather say "no gifts" but the fairly traditional mother-of-the-bride had a fit at that idea, so we've compromised with agreeing to register...at REI. So now we're in the weird position of needing to put together a wish list and not really knowing what to put on it.
My fiancee and I are newbie road bikers, but are getting more and more into it. We don't even have road bikes at the moment, just hybrids - so those are first on the list. But I'm curious...knowing what you know now, if you were randomly given a few thousand dollars to spend only at REI, what would you get? This might help us flesh out our registry list.
Special notes that may or may not matter: I'm really tall (6'4"). She's average height. We're both pretty skinny. I'm particularly interested in what bikes to put on there, but if there's any other gear there that you think is really useful or fun, then why not put that on there too?'
Any advice you can offer is much appreciated. Thanks!
