      Wife got me a couple things bike related this year.

      Lucky me to have two pair of Kyle Strait 661 Knee Pads, I bought myself an early Christmas present and picked up a pair of pads and my wife not knowing this order me a pair as well. Good thing is one is L and other is M so I can try them on and see which I like best. If anyone needs a pair I will post the pair I’m not keeping on the buy and sell.
      She also got me a new Sram 991 chain and some new bike bling in the form of Straitline headset spacers.

      Most people here already know what my wife got me for Christmas 😃 – but it rocks on the trails so I’ll post another pic of my Giant 29er

      I got my daughter a pair of Shimano SPD pedals. (So I can have my eggbeaters back) and my wife got me some Keen bike shoes for commuting to work.

      My son gave me a heavy duty air pump (Tower Air) with a reliable, readable guage! Great for presta valves. Makes the pre-ride prep easier.

      My wife gifted me a four pack of Dogfish Head IPA. Makes the post ride relaxation smooth.

      I gifted myself a mountain biking tour of Redrocks Canyon near Vegas in March.

      Merry Christmas to all!

      Nice one jamis29er, for some reason I always seem to enjoy the gifts I get myself…….

      I got a bit of cash for Christmas so I ordered a full face helmet yesterday. 😃

      Cool. I have a Cateye Enduro 8 and love it. Does everything I need. And it’s been through hell. 😃

      My wife got me a long-sleeve, merino wool Sugoi jersey. I think it will be fantastic for cool weather, especially when paired with a silk-weight Patagonia base layer.

      Plus, my mom got me some Ergon GX-1 grips for the Niner EMD I am building for next season.

      I got a Camelbak cleaning kit and a new multi-tool. I also got some base layers and socks that will come in handy for rides. Plus, a gift card to REI which may or may not result in additional bike gear.

      I may have also bought myself a little something on Christmas day. More on that later.

      Lastly, Mother Nature has gifted central VA with great riding weather this December. I rode Christmas Eve, the day after Christmas, and have rides planned for Friday, Sunday, and a day trip to check out some new trails on Monday.

      Wife and kids gave me some warmer clothing for winter riding (if winter ever shows up), new SXL’s brakes, upgraded derailer and the opportunity for three great rides (Pinhoti Trail) over the holiday. I am spoiled!

    • #104144

      Looks like everyone got some great stuff.

      I used my gift cards to get myself some more stuff, I got 2 spare tubes, 2 power links, a pair of merino wool socks and a pair of five ten impact 2 shoes.

      I also went over the top and order a Go Pro HD Hero, not to sure if I will be keeping this or not but the price was right and I decided I’d pull the trigger and decide if I want it (really means, will my wife allow me to keep it) once it arrives. Stay tuned for an update!

      I got some tools (wrenches, chain tool), a bell, and a cool water bottle shaped bike lock from Kuat. mudhunny also got me some cool bike art from OffTheMap with maps of Denver, Portland, Atlanta, and Raleigh/Durham (all places we’ve lived and/or biked).

      Nice artwork trek7k. What a great gift.
      Some of that would look great hanging in my house! I doubt my wife would be on board with though 😢

    • #104148

      My wife gave me a new light for my bike.Had been looking into night riding so researched and ordered a Magic Shine MJ-816E. Tried it out for a short ride the next night and found it as bright if not brighter than my vehicles headlights. Very satisfied so far.

      That’s a really cool idea! That should brighten the office up a little bit! 😀

      Personally, I didn’t really get all that much bike-related stuff this Christmas (my big Xmas gift was an iPhone). But I did get a couple of t-shirts, some riding socks, Klunkerz, a Hucknroll gift card from my cool bosses which I used to buy some body armor, and I’ve got a $100 bill that I might use to buy a new front wheel.

      Will post pics if I get a chance…

      Troy Lee Designs Shock Doctor Core Protector. Should help mitigate some pain from crashes a bit. Super light (all cellular pad protection), lots of removable panels for customization, and seems very breathable. I might even use it on Super-D/Enduro events in a minimal form.
