No bike or bike gear but my son got me this, which, unlike my bikes, will be used every day.

I was so disappointed. My niece bought me a tablet computer but I had been hoping for a coloring book. Maybe next year.

Bike stuff?? I was supposed to get bike stuff? I (we) got a new MacBook Pro to replace my 7 year old MBP. And a new printer.
I got a new bike 3 months ago.

[EDIT] I got a new bike repair stand last week. [/EDIT]

A new pair of Pearl Izumi Attack shorts, a new pair of Nashbar mesh back gloves, and a Nashbar Tempo wireless computer,

I'm going to break down and join the electronic gizmo crowd.

Pearl Izumi thermal gloves, neoprene shoe covers, 2-bike trunk mount rack, and electric tire pump. The rack is amusing since I've driven to only one ride ever, but maybe now I will.

A black Selle Anatomica X, I really wanted one to see if it is at least as nice as my Brooks B17.

Pearl Izumi Pro thermal three-quarters bib tights. Fine piece of kit. There's something about knickers that I really like--keep my knees warm and versatile over a wide range of temps. Merry Christmas.

Neos Villager overshoes. Easy on, easy off, and less prone to tear than my old rubber ones.

No bike stuff but that is because I treated myself to new bike when I turned the big 5-0 in October. With two kids time is more precious than things nowadays.

The kids got me a Misfit Flash fitness plus sleep monitor. It can be used for swimming, cycling, running and sleep. Our two daughters each have one and are tracking their steps.

Being one who is parked in front of a computer most of the work day, it may help me get up and do some more walking during the day.

Specialized winter cycling shoes (SPD), A HRM and Speed/Cadence sensor--of course, I got these ahead of time, but the better half authorized the purchases as my Christmas Gifts.
