What Are You Asking Santa For.

Well it is almost here. That joyous time of gluttony and greed. A.K.A, Christmas in the U.S.A. So what cycling related items are you asking santa for....

I have just started my list but so far:

1.Thud Buster G3 Seatpost

2. New wheels. Mavics or Sun Ryhno lite rims w/ some respectable hub.

3. Another bike rack and trunk bag.

4. Gift cert. to LBS, Performance, Nasbar etc....

I'm still thinking..................

Having that sitting around and not built up must be pure torture. I know having my road bike almost done and ready to ride is killing me, I must ride it NOW!

well santa could be very nice, and give me a big giant boulder of coal, so I can shove it on door to door salepeople...but that's a bit redundant...using coal given to you by santa in a way that will ensure getting more coal to you from santa....plus if you used hte coal he gave you for evil...does that imply the next bag has to be bigger, to show how much worse you were?

I would consider consulting a higher power. I may be wrong, but I'm not sure if Santa has that kind of authority. The Old Testament God probably would have done that on a whim, I don't think New Testament God goes in for that kind of thing. I would check with Satan and see what his Tuesdays look like.

Oops, I'm sorry, santa was a typo. Take the "n" and move it to the end of the word. Obviously I misread the question...

Santa's being very generous this year already, providing a soon to come full overhaul including my Headshox and headset the latter of which needs some attention soon, as well as the parts below.

Already ordered:

SRAM PG-990 Cassette 11-34
SRAM PC-99 9sp Chain
Race Face Evolve Crankset, 175 mm, Black
Race Face SRX BB, 108mm

Also asked for some Pearl Izumi bib tights, Craft undershirt, various tools, mostly Park (cassette lockring remover, torx wrench for my disks).
