Commuting Christmas gifts

A good haul this year. My wife got me a Rogue Panda frame bag with custom art work. Also got a Lucky Cat bottle cage and a Hydro Flask from MIL. And a bicycle shaped ring puzzle, though I canít figure out what the puzzle is Iím supposed to solve.

Thanks!

Although it does point out how a size-M frame is at a disadvantage for bikepacking volume

Ehm, that can get expensive. Between seat pouch, multi-tool, spare tube, pump, and blinkies, I think I spent about $150 after I bought my last bike. OTOH, that's a nice looking ride!

My wife treated me to some bike tires that I ordered for her and I think at least one daughter is bringing more next week. It may not sound like commuting presents until you see how many I wore out this year.

i worried about the same with my medium sized Salsa Journeyman. not a lot of room for a frame bag.

i bought some stuff for myself this Christmas: Merino neck gaiter, couple hats, merino socks, new gloves and shoe covers. Planet X stuff.
