    Good quality bike lights (front/tail/wheel/spoke--some people like the expensive Monkey Light), bike camera, reflective tape/bands...

Getting a helmet mount mirror even though I don't ride on the roads and only am on a very sparsely populated bike path in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the woods. If I'm listening to earbuds, I still occasionally get someone faster than me coming by and they startle me (not a problem because I am always riding on the right side as opposed to a lot of walkers I see who spread across the entire path blocking it.) I can grab 1 other item and don't know what to get because I plan to pick up a new bike in the spring. I know I want bar end grips for a flat bar, but I think I'm going to pick up Ergon grips when I buy the new bike. I'd like to have toe clips (not clipless) but I'd also need new better pedals to mount them (mine are cheap plastic on a cheap junk bike) but again, I probably won't ride this bike again other than the rare nice day before spring comes when I get a new one.

    I don't know if I could get padded shorts or even undershorts for roughly $25+ on Amazon. Perhaps I should just hold onto the gift card until I get the bike, but then, I do know I want the helmet mirror.

    Don't have much to add to my $25 since I spend way too much money elsewhere having off work for about 2 and a half weeks over the Christmas holiday.
    Dont leave home without a multi tool or a water bottle.

    I didn't even know about this saddle...another 400 mile break in period I suppose.

    No riding today... wife decided I need to clean out the shop

    Amazon... I got a nice windfall of Amazon certificates to spend too. So far: 2 liter pressure cooker, shower head, music and some books (Kindle and hard copy). Still have some left to spend. That blender is sweet!

    Velo-Orange saddles seem to be pretty decent. I put one on my son's city bike when I could not source a Brooks at the time. So far so good.

    I am in awe. Still trying to get my wife into cycling, but I don't think it's going to happen until after she has surgery and certain pressures on her lower back are relieved.

    I'm glad to hear more positive experiences from riders who have owned (or at least purchased) them! I'm looking forward to it...the saddle arrives just after New Year's Day, so I'll be getting my Blue Slate + Brown color combo Schwinn Racer out and about with the VO just in time to start the year fresh. If it turns out I like this saddle, I'll end up getting one for my other Racer, plus the Sid I'm currently building.

    I just got my wife a Kindle (4th Gen) for Christmas, along with two hard-copy books that I thought she'd love. She already had a Kindle Fire, but said that it held so many opportunities for distraction (internet, Facebook, games) that she never could find the focus necessary to read on it. After this coming month, we'll have almost ten full-sized bookshelves chock-full, and though I love hard copies (no charging required), it's just so much easier to get the digital copies and have them ALL in one place! Kudos to you for your mixed book purchases!

    it all started in December of 2012 when her car finally died. I was dropping her off at work on my way to work for about 2 months, then she got a bike off craigslist so she could ride to work - it was only 7 miles. So we got her some stuff, then I realized I missed biking so I also got a bike from craigslist and started commuting to work. So, basically we bought so much in 2013 because we were starting up and needed everything. Now we both have nice road bikes, so 2014 should be less active. I think we almost have everything we'd need.

    Hehehe...I'm glad you're both so into it! I've made Amazon quite a small fortune (in my terms of "fortune") by buying almost everything I could from them. I hope 2014 is safe and enjoyable for you both!

    I have the Kindle Touch that I use for reading, I also have a Nexus 7 tab with the Kindle app. I keep them synchronized so I can read from either one. I agree with your wife that it is easy to get side tracked using the Nexus rather than the basic Kindle. The one thing I do like about it is the lighted screen and color pictures.

    I have a core collection of hardback books that I will probably never part with. I have several first edition sets and a few signed copies of others. Some are classics others that just caught my fancy. My newest acquisition was a book about the Raleigh bicycle company. I grew up with a massive number of books in the family, many handed down through the generations. I seem to recall complete sets of The Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew and several hundred Reader's Digest Condensed from one side of the family.

    I'll put in a good word for the Velo Orange Model 3 saddle mentioned above -- I have a Brooks B17 also, and like the VO just as well. I have mine on my SS 29er.

    Log in to your Amazon and check how many orders you had for 2013, and you can also download order reports than will download as an excel spreadsheet and then add up all your purchases to see your grand total. I did it, and made a thread for it, and for other site purchases like Nashbar, etc.

    Mind = Blown. I'll need to go through the 327 Amazon orders from 2013 and cut out the non-bike-related and work-related purchases. :-o

    In addition to the work stand you said you already have, here are some of the items I bought this past year --

    If you don't already have one, a large ultrasonic cleaner is a nice thing to have.
    I like the VO road pedals since I'm a toe-clip and strap kind of guy.
    Seat or handlebar bag - the larger kind instead of a wedge seat bag.
    Frame pump
    Bar tape
    Cables/housing
    Tires/tubes
    Freewheel/cassette
    Brake pads
    Fenders
    Chain
    Chain cleaner
    Chain lube
    Lights/reflectors
    Helmet
    Touring shoes
    '75 Fuji S-10S bought new, 45k+ miles and still going!
    '84 Univega Viva Sport
    '90 Schwinn Woodlands
    Huffy MTB - for trips to corner store
    MTB of questionable lineage aka 'Mutt Trail Bike'
