LOOT - Wudya get?

Notices
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

All these advancements in bike tech over the past 30 years have been like 'what's the big deal' until you started using it every day. Toe clips, index shifting, STI, Di2, etc. I guess it goes both ways. You have to experience it directly. I can assure you that after a few days on the rig in the photo above you'd be happy to get back to a more modern bicycle.

I ride 25 year old bicycles every day... that being said most of the bikes in the calendar are not bikes I'd want to ride on a regular basis, but they are interesting to look at.

Don't know if a "dick" was necessary, I tend to agree with the technical advancements of never going back although I do have a 1990 Basso Lotto w/ full C record for posterity purposes. Steel was real.

I didn't get any bike stuff yet.

But I did run into a sale on Topeak Morph pumps at an LBS and I grabbed one for everybody I know who could use one.

Looks like you made out pretty well. And whoever is buying your gifts definitely understands the concept of quality. Good stuff.

Coal is quite a precious commodity. He probably got that DA hollow tech crank he broke a while ago.

Nothing bike related, don't really need anything.

A few shirts, propane heater for when the power goes out, an awesome Black Rapid camera strap, a calendar with pics of my pups, some Coney Island beer, some canned jalapenos, and a beautiful Citizen watch.

More importantly, I believe that everyone was happy with the gifts they received from me this year.
