What's #1 on your cycling Christmas list this year?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

What's #1 on your cycling Christmas list this year?

You know, I am part jewish too and I will bet money there is more one jewish person on this board

Naah, I see nothing wrong with it ...
The world is far too politically correct these days, anyway
We all know it refers to the general holiday time and applies to us all, whether we celebrate xmas or not.

Basically, I'm getting nothing for my bike regardless

Oh, and there I was with my mind in the gutter..

Ok, back to scheduled programming ...
Actually - on topic ... I need to buy myself a new pair of cleats (Campy Pro-Fit floating ...
I currently have fixed cleats), as well as a bike box for travelling.

Johnny Carson's favorite line from comedian Bill Maher: " Merry Christmas everyone, and Happy Hanukah to those of you who killed our Lord..."

Maher has a Catholic mother and a Jewish father.

My Christmas list is simple, I'd wish it was a full carbon bike, but the things below will do for now:
Easton Ascent II (set)
FSA Carbon Pro Elite ISIS (compact)
Garmin 305

That's all.

New leg warmers are the only thing on my material list, though I don't really need them and Santa/wife has been very good to me lately. My old ones are over 20 years old and wool, so they are a bit moth eaten but still are functional. I did buy a used 2002 Lemond Zurich recently at a little over budget (Thank you, honey!) so I feel like Christmas has come a wee bit early for me this year. Really all I want is for everyone to be safe on the road for the next year, at least. That would be the best present of all.
