You're supposed to put the stuff you got in your first post, dillybar!

I finally got "Seasons". I've been wanting that one for eons.

My Marz. 55 was supposed to be my Xmas present, but I got it early...hahaha. Hopefully getting some OEM S wheels for the Kona...not 100% sure yet. That's more of a "post Xmas gift" for myself.

I received lots of Tools for x-mas. I got the Park P-handle Hex key set, the digital calipers, the cone wrench set.
Other things were Primal Jersey, '11 IMBA calendar, socks.

Then stuff like cologne, razors, body wash, other misc items. I made out pretty well this year.

Wife bought me a new 2010 Fisher Hifi Deluxe 29er. Spent a couple of days in Alabama/Florida riding it. I left my shoes in Ohio and had to put my son's commuter flats on.

Even though bike stuff was high on my list, as far as stuff I just got a gift card to Performance and The Time-Crunched Cyclist. But I did get to get out on Christmas Eve for a few hours and got a great ride in before the rain came. That was nice.

And here's my first test video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EX6MsqzmjnU

I got a wicked espresso machine and grinder combo. It's an Ascaso Steel Uno Professional with a PID controller and a flat-burr Steel I-1 grinder. For a guy who get as nerdy about coffee as he does about bikes, I'm pretty friggin' keen on it.

I didn't get anything bike-related and that's fine. Anything I need, I'll get from work.
