First, best of the Season to WWs everywhere.

I am having trouble coming-up with gifts for cyclists. Usually, there is something interesting that I can find, but this year there doesn't seem to be anything obvious. As 'guys who have everything', what would you want from the Jolly Old Bicycle Elf?

Might be a little late, but I think these things make cool gifts.

that's what I gave last year!

I was thinking of their bottom bracket tools, but they don't have a DA/Campagnolo version, so you need to buy two for a set. The derailleur hanger adjuster is a great idea, but it is not available yet...

Some clothing is always good, things like gloves, winter gloves, hats, wind vest. Assos stuff would make a nice present!

It might be too obvious, but a good pump is always welcome.
custom engraved top cap possibly?

depends on the rider

personally I need some baselayers, more warmers (arms/knees/booties - only have one pair each), my sunglass lenses are scratched, never replaced the helmet I crashed on, all my bottles are old, etc. :lol: :| :cry: Hopefully Santa Claus will come through :noidea:

if you ask them i'm sure they'll have something to complain about :lol: but makes it more worthwhile when it's something they really need. :thumbup: :beerchug:

Anything custom would be a cool! Custom bottles, bar ends, name stickers for frame, tools, or clothes.

Someone linked to the Saevid custom saddles, they can look really cool. Somewhat pricey, but if it wasn't for the Saevid logo they stick on all their custom saddles I would've ordered one straight away.

Protection when "saddling up" is always appropriate for the discriminating cyclist.

Google translates this as "Go through life with ease". Yes siree Bob!!

I meant to add this earlier and figured a "gift" thread was always a good idea.

But if you're still looking for cyclist minded gifts why not coffee. A few brands out there with cycling minded folks behind but a cool one out of Vermont is giving the profits to their juniors in Vermont. Tasty artisan coffee is pretty tough to go wrong with though.
