Just a couple of pairs of Scott socks for me :) (we have done all our $$ on new bikes this year....Santa was on a budget!)
This probably doesn't apply to the socks....but weigh your presents (bike related) before mounting them, of course.
Merry xmas..Pics of new toys here please.
Updated: Racing again! Thought this was unlikely! Eventually, I may even have a decent race!

Highlighters! Litteraly. Awesome stuff, very light weight, because they're mini-highlighters. Wonder if stripping the decals off them would make them lighter :roll: :lol:
This board would be a nicer place if everyone would take themselves less seriously.

Santa's always a bust, so I get my own. Last year it was an upgrade to DA. This year, prescription Rudy Rydon's in multilaser blue.

Santa has me in Paris, France with my family celebrating Christmas. We are staying until January 9, 2008. So this means being with my oldest daughter who is living here for the holidays and her 22nd birthday! This is the best gift ever!

I did some some clothing and my daughters gave me some books too. One of the books is cycling related since it is a history of the Tour De France.

Actually, I misspoke: I did get a Competitive Cyclist gift certificate and a copy of "A Sunday in Hell" from my mother-in-law. But, I made the suggestions.

Santa is a bit slow getting down here from Germany, but he should have with him some Fulcrum RS cranks and a pair of Centaur shifters... plus a Jtek to make it work :wink:

At any rate I paid the old b-stard to bring the stuff, so if he doesn't front it won't be pretty.

Garmin 705 (to be delivered when available), a new digital camera, Powertap SL 2.4 Wheelset, many clothes and Flight of the Conchords Season 1 DVD.

I made out pretty well this year!
This board would be MUCH nicer if everybody would just chill out.

My son bought me Positively False, the book by Landis. When it first came out I was thinking about buying it then changed my mind. I started reading it and I am still in it's early part. I find his background and upbringing interesting.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who watches FOTC!

I'm a little worried about having info overload after I receive the 705- I've been riding sans computer for almost a year now.

It'll be fun, though.
