Just curious to see what Santa brought everyone for Christmas. He brought me an Easton carbon fiber seat post and bar.

Bike art for the family room. A couple framed posters, and two pieces of hanging sculptures. For my bike-themed family room!
He forgot the C40!McAndrus

A Selle Italia Flite saddle, a new multi-tool, two pairs of DeFeet socks, and a poster of LeMond winning the '89 World Championship.

I can't figure where he left the Colnago C40.
Cool framed pic!!! :)CT1

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!
Hubby is soooooo cool!Spinchick

He asked Santa to bring me a 2002 Bicycling calendar (some awesome shots).

Plus there was a box addressed to "Spinchick." In it was a very chic pair of brown suede pants. I must have looked a little incredulous (considering my going on 4 month pregnant tummy). His reply: "Hey, the baby's due late June/early July. Plenty of summer left after that for you to ride your a** off. (I think he meant that literally)."

What a guy!
What? No tandem, the nerve of the man! ;-) Merry X-mas. nmmMB1

His/her C-40's, two sets of K's, a trip to Italy....PaulCL

...I wish. My fantasy. A wife into cycling as much as I am.

I got (cycling-wise) a pair of Voler bibs, case of "GU", big box of Cliff Bars. I am expecting a gift certificate or two from my in-laws to Colorado Cyclist. With those, I'll splurge on some trinkets.

Other than cycling stuff, I received: clothes, woodworking tools (another hobby of mine) and lingerie for my wife. Yeah, yeah, I bought the lingerie, but it's still MY gift.

Merry Christmas everyone. Paul

OK, I put the down payment on the Merckx frame myself to get it ordered, but my wife give me the video and calendar.
Lossa great stuff!nigel
Dec 25, 2001 6:23 PM
Glad that people have gotten some super cycling stuff! Enjoy in safety and with speed.

I got a Chris King headset (!!); 12-27 cassette for hilly rides (especially those for hilly rides in the winter when I want to spin, spin, spin, not push a 23 on big/steep hills; frames Leige-Bastogne-Liege print; Joe Friel's "The Cyclist's Training Bible," Pearl Izumi Calientoes (toe warmers); Pedro's Ice Wax; a Spinervals video ("Suffer-O-Rama"!!!); and a Sweatnet sweat catcher for trainer use. I made out just fine (thanks to my dear wife, who makes sure that everyone knows EXACTLY what I want--and that I get the goods!).

May everyone enjoy the gifts they received, and may they be inspired to ride, ride, ride.

Big cheers,
Nige

I only got an inflatable couch from my friend. Your s.o's must have some serious money to just buy full carbon forks, 100 dollar helmets, tons of clothes, bikes, wheels.

I think I am just gonna go cry in my doghouse.

Woof.

Finally I can retire my old threadbare no-name model and surf in style.

This Dee Dog is huge. 12 beers and still plenty of room for all my usual junk. Kitchen sink not included.

A Fuji digital cameral that does little movies, too. I had an HP but killed it when it got wet and corroded inside. :-(

No bike stuff (but there isn't much left to buy). :-(
