Nothing here. We try to keep Christmas time purchases to the minimum. We did buy hockey tickets to take our daughters and their husbands to see the Capitals play on the Friday after Thanksgiving. That's their Christmas gift. We'll take them to dinner, too, so I guess that qualifies as Black Friday spending...

I'm planning to follow REI's "lead" (in quotes because I've been not-shopping on black Friday for years!), and get outside. Nice bike ride, or raking leaves and picking up pecans, as the yard situation dictates.

Bike gear? I've got most of what I need for the present and for the next year already. (Plus I doubt I'll find a sale on tandem length Campy derailer cable.)

Though it might be time to ride down to my LBS and get a test ride on one of their gravel bikes. There's a nice gravel-and-mud road under construction just a mile from the shop.

I may check out what's online and hope the phone doesn't ring, as I'll likely be on call should someone's home catch fire (I volunteer with a relief organization).

Having witnessed Black Friday madness few times before, I am going to stay home and relax. It's not safe to go outside and drive or ride a bike or walk around shopping malls. It's complete anarchy out there.

If you're not planning on buying anything, why post in the thread?

Anywho, to stay on topic...
  • a new helmet (Smith makes some in nice colourways that I'm hoping will go on sale. I like wild colours and I hope those are the ones that get marked down).
  • a carbon crankset to replace my S300 messenger crank
  • some new shoes (mavic's would be nice as they seem to fit the best)

Powertap disc Enve 7.8 rear wheel. It's a shame Wheelbuilder is only doing the $500 off for wheelsets. All I need is a wheel & a set is more than my credit card will allow.

I think I'll call them on the telephone & see if they'll do $250 off for one wheel. $1675 is tough to swallow when a whole set is only about $600 more at $23xx.

I've checked eBay & the usual suspects. Enve 7.8's are hard to come by in the Powertap disc variety. Though if anyone is interested The Pro's Closet has a set of the rim brake Powertap rear & Dt180 front clincher version for around ~$1400...I might pick that up for my Cervelo if no ine here beats me to it first.

Since my LBS stopped carrying them, I'll be buying some Cranksports E-Gel packs on sale from Cranksports.

On Amazon, what ever has the biggest discount, even if I don't need it.

"Nothing" (or a variant thereof) is a perfectly acceptable response to the question as phrased by the OP. If he/she is looking for answer only from people who are planning to shop he/she should have phrased the question differently.

Sorry indy but the people that reply - nothing - are just like little kids trying to draw attention to themselves.
If your not looking for something you have no need to reply.
Grow up.

Nothing in particular this year, but I have been eyeing clearance shoes. Have yet to find anything in wide width unfortunately. Funny enough I was looking at those 600 level "touring pedals" as well, though if I remember right they were on sale this summer as well.

I won't go into a store on Black Friday, but if good online deals pop up, I can be suckered into about anything.

Don't blame me for your choice of words. And don't be the adult in the room who cannot concede that my answer (and those of some others) were literal responses to the question you posed. Too much of that going on in the world. Let it go.

Me: Nothing.

I'm shopping for world peace and a quick fix to the issue of global warming, but I don't want to spend more than $100.

For that matter, how much control does the OP expect to have over the thread? It certainly opens the floor to "I don't participate in Black Friday because...."

I really don't care if OP likes that answer. Opening a topic opens the door to all sorts of views.

Buy both first, then start a thread about them here asking if you should have bought them.

Ok! Just did it. I'll need to change my bike computer to measure in mach numbers, but I think it'll be worth it.



Enve 5.6 and a 24 hole Shutter Precision dynamo are planned for the springtime to round out the 23 pound self contained continent crosser. I can't wait!
