Well by now we've all had a chance to open open our gifts, what was under the tree for you this morning?
The best gift for me was a surprise visit from my daughter coming to L.A. from NYC, she'll be here until after the New Year!
My wife picked up these C.J.'s for me, they are from the universities we've attended...both used but still super clean..I guess we will do some shopping after the day is over.
Hoping that you received what you wished for...share a few photos if you wish.
Best, Ben

Santa got my son a trainer for his bike so he’ll stay off of mine. It’s a gift for me, too—I was tired of his forehead resetting my computer.

The big gift is having all of our family together and the boys home from school.

Also, Santa left me more than my share of outdoors gear.

This book, The Great Minnesota Fish Book, was written by a close relative.

Tom Dickson is now the editor for Montana Outdoors and quite a notable outdoorsperson.

I must be getting old I got slippers and two throws, one electric since I am always so cold. I also got a cool set of cocktail pics and some bike related stuff.

Our very own iab gave me a great deal on these and I decided to gift them to myself along with some NOS shipmano stuff

The smaller boxes are NOS Tricolor shifters and RD


Great package


A Celeste nest


Better than factory packaging

After riding on 2 different tours that I organized this year, and noticing that I was following those with a GPS computer when near towns with multiple turns (looking at you, nlerner and SquireBlack ), Santa brought me a Wahoo Elemnt.

Not from Santa, but from me to me. This just arrived from Ebay yesterday. I read here on BF about Frank Berto's passing and how good "The Dancing Chain" was. A quick look on the 'Bay, found one at a good BIN price, so I grabbed it. My wife and I both came down with some kind of stomach bug, so we cut our family Christmas short. Feeling better, but too cold to ride, even in SoCal, (we may get snow in LA!), so the book is a very theraputic diversion from "The Christmas that almost wasn't ". Hope yours' was happier. Here's a few random shots. My brother is a great pen and ink artist, and I can't wait to show him these drawings. Even has my hero Gino Bartali on the cover! 400 pages of cycling history and joy!

That sounds like a good problem to have with a young lad, hopefully he runs with it too.

My elder son says he just goes through the tool section at Home Depot and picks out stuff he would want for himself as gifts for me and his brother. He got me something I didn't know existed -- a Husky ratcheting combo wrench set (metric, of course -- I raised my boys right ) with ratchets on the open end as well as the box end sides. The 12-point box ends can take triple squares, Torx, hex, and square head bolts. I already have ratcheting box end wrenches, but I have never seen open end ratchet wrench before. My only gripe is the lack of an 11mm -- I'll try to pick up either that or a close-enough 7/16", and maybe a 16mm = 5/8" in open stock or in the companion 6-piece SAE set.
