Just got myself a used 2003 Time VX Special ProTime. It's really, really good.
So if Santa wants to give me a special treat why not a brand new 2004 Time VXR.

I like my old Steve Bauer Whatsit (Darned if I know. MTB? Tourer?) I'd ask Santa for new brakepads and other small stuff that I keep putting off. Then I'd go for the big one - a full set of touring bags!

I am taking my Christmas Bonus and buying another Trek Mtn. Bike. This time I would like disc brakes. I would like another bike so my G.Friend can ride with me. She can use my much loved Trek 4900! Can't wait!!( Did we not say this "can't wait " stuff when we were little kids?)

I don't really need another bike. Wait scratch that, there is always a need for another bike.

I'd say an IF Crown Jewel for a road bike, or a Bianchi S.A.S.S. for a mtn bike (minus the chrome seat).

Or, maybe a new Intense Tazer with their VPP technology!

If you are dissatisfied with the posts and the fun we have with them, why don't you take yourself on over to the whiner forums. You know the ones, all members are less than 3 years old and all they do is cry and want things their way. We have no room for such immature antics like that you (insert proper words here). By the way , I see that your signature says you are young. You might want to erase that because EVERYBODY knows that you are.

I'd want a garage sale celest colored, Bianchi, old enough to have 120mm dropouts. None of the components matter because I'm just going to screw it up anyway.
