The Chainlink

Anyone get anything cool and bike-related for birthday, wedding, or the holidays (Christmas, Hannukah, Eid, Festivas, or any other recent holiday)?

Santa time is bike (gear) time... woot!

I got a Garmin cadence sensor. I couldn't be more excited. :-)

I got this as a Christmas gift to myself (from a LBS that I saw advertised on The Chainlink).  I haven't installed it.  Can't wait to scare the shit out of the motherfuckers walk/stand in protected bike lanes.

Here is one from hannukah from my new aunt in law. She was sooooo excited to give it to me. 

Sometimes the simplest and least expensive gift tells a cycling friend you know who they are.  A friend got me this for my birthday and I was touched.  It was not from this retailer but its the same product.

These are my new book marks.

Hoping Santa comes through with a trailer for a new canine addition to my family.

Here are a few more from hannukah - 

 

Wedding present from a very special Chainlink friend.  More wedding presents when I get home.

Wow Christine - remind me not to get in your way!

Mrs. Santa brought me Torque wrench set. That will come in great when building up my new bike. I can finally adjust it to the specified torque, instead of to "that feels about right". I also got a Bicycle Quarterly calendar, which  contains some of the greatest glamor shots of vintage bikes I've ever seen. A subscription renewal to Curmudgeon Quarterly Bicycle Quarterly was also received.

And finally I got a set of Malort water bottles for the discerning retro-grouch smug pretentious cyclist in me.

The folks who work with me gave me a gift card for a LBS which I really appreciate.  But really the best gift I get at Christmas and all year round is Mr. Lisa's tolerance for my obsession with riding my bike, and my desire to buy more "bike stuff" and more bikes!

The wife got me a portable repair stand... (probably was tired of me flipping my bike upside down on our dining room table!) ...and my Mother-in-law got me a set of bar-end brake levers. 

I received a handelbar mount for my Go Pro.

My family has finally accepted that I'm not crazy, just very happy when on my bike.

From my wife:

Blackburn Flea light set because "You keep leaving your lights on a...

Fleece with a whole lot of pockets and weight management

From my daughters:

Pace wool cap because "Your ears get cold when you are on your bike...

The Enlightened Cyclist

From my mother in law/father in law (just the idea that they got anything bike related is very touching, since I get more hassle from them than anyone else for riding):

Einstein on a bike poster

Bike socks

More bike socks

My wife was going to get me a gift card for Salsa or All City to put toward a new touring bike, but I jokingly told her not to buy the bikes on my wish list.  So she made a point to specifically tell me that she didn't buy the gift certificate.
