My friend's been riding around for the past like 7 years on this broken down panasonic road bike, ripped seat, foam bar tape melted off, brakes dried and cracked, derailleur doesn't work, chromed rims.

I'm gonna get him a new saddle, bar tape, and brake pads.

What's everyone getting for their fellow cyclists?

I got Chris Carmichaels Time Trialing DVD for two of my friends that race in a local time trial every year. I'm still working on something for a couple others so would like to see some ideas here.

Bought my dad a Brooks Professional saddle to put on his old Pogliaghi.

I'm getting my wife a new cyclometer. She has a Trek that isn't reliable, and she has been admiring my Sigma.

We're getting two of our kids new bikes, (trikes actually). Other than that...

I'm not getting y'all anything and I don't know any other cyclists.
