Wondering what made you happy when you woke up this morning and checked the tree?
This year was another good one for me and Rebecca, our daughter was home from NYC for Christmas and New Years....Thankful to have her back for 3 weeks before she returns to work.
I did get a surprise....along with the usual Spam and Ramen, this year I received a Lamy fountain Pen to replace the one that I wore out.

Please share what you received.
Merry Christmas to All, Best, Ben

I saw these wheels on marketplace for what seemed like a reasonable price so they were my Christmas present to myself. Purchased from the guy that built them MANY years ago.






Since he knew he had a gullible sort standing in front of him he offered me a second set for a very fair price.





Grungy but they cleaned up very well.

Merry Christmas all!

I bought 10mm ratcheting combo wrenches for both boys. Common size on cars and bikes, and one for which there is no reasonable SAE alternative.

My wife and I don't really do much for the holidays, so I ordered a "mystery 3pack" of overstock/blem Pace caps from their website for her to give me. I was surprised all three are wearable designs. A brewery from Calgary, a Denver bike club and a Nike/Postmates/Durant one that I can't help thinking the sneakerheads would pay for.

I bought myself the only bike related gift that I received this Christmas. A Shimano brake cable kit with white housing. And the most money I've ever spent on cables. Ever.

Thomas scored pretty well. He got a bunch of stuff for his Zeus. Notably, a set of decals.

I love my Varia. I largely ig ore it in traffic because cars are constantly passing. On rural paved roads its nice to just be aware of what is coming when I can't hear due to wind noise.
It really shines in gravel as I can take the center line in the road and know I am not frustrating anyone behind me thst I can't hear due to road/wind noise. The varia alerts me of a car approaching, I move to the right, and the car passes without frustration.
It really is slick.

What I got was more of a what I didnít get. Didnít get the typical Iowa Christmas. It was an unusually dry, sunny, and low wind day which made for an awesome gravel ride. The only thing that could have made it better would have been vintage steel.

I didn’t get anything bike related but my sister got me a color wheel for my tinsel tree.




My good friends in Delaware got me a dirty shower curtain. I am kind of into ‘40/‘50s fashion and nose / pinup art so they sent me. It’s cut off at the bottom but you can see the top of the EL in Elvgren.

Got more yesterday. We celebrate xmas in the evening of the 24th and save stockings for the morning. This year we also went to the nieces and nephews house to celebrate with them. They added a Wahoo Ticker and a pair of Oakley EV Pitch to the bike stuff.
I didn't mention that the Varia also came with cadence and speed sensors. Kinda like the Garmen mounting better than Wahoo for the sensors. I just hope I can find standard O rings as replacements when the originals break.

Cable cherries, I had to look that one up.

Neat idea. I'll have to get a few. Thanks for showing those, Neal.
