Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I'm hoping Satan will bring me a fixie frame - IRO RR or custom equivalent - I don't care which. I'm not getting anything for my girlfriend, but I got some new grips for my wife.

Kinky. I like it, but you forgot to ask whether that's what I asked for or what I'm getting my girlfriend.

wool socks for riding in the cold...

my ex-gf who i'm still friends with already gave me her gifts, which included a laminated calendar with a picture of my bike in semi-silhouette (pre-upgrading from SI Flite saddle/Kalloy Laprade seatpost to SI slr/Thomson Elite so that's the only thing i see when i look at it) and a water bottle holder (except none of my bikes have braze-ons). Thought that counts though.

A Chrome messenger bag. After 16 years with my Timbuk2 I think it's time to retire her, although I'll feel like I'm cheating on it

I'll probably get some super duper lame bike related present because my parents are living in Dubia at the moment and we are spending christmas there. I don't think bicycles exist in UAE unless they have 4 wheels, weigh 7,000 pounds and get a mile a gallon. As such there is probably not a single bike shop in the emirate and bike presents will be poor at best.

My grandparents were generous enough to pay for a custom PAC deluxe OS. No idea what the rest of the family is getting me for bike stuff though, I hope there's a record bottom bracket in there somewhere. I think I'll just tie a big red bow around Mr. Happy for the girlfriend as I'm broke.

I have reason to suspect my parents bought me a roof rack for my (OH NO!) car. I also spotted OneTwentyEight's cycling cap pattern laying beside my mom's sewing machine last time I was over (!).

I'm buying my girlfriend some dental floss, whiskey and underwear. She's easy to please.

I've been a mean b*****d and not made any kind of hint at what I'd like.

My poor girlfriend. I'm either going to be pleasantly surprised or very disappointed.
