2 gift cards for the bike shop, a copy of "The Noblest Invention" and I bought my buddy who got me that a copy of "The Golden Age of Bicycles" which I get to trade with him when I'm done. As his wife said, "So you guys essentially got two books." Right on.

I got myself a new commuter bike a month before Christmas. Life is good

Don't read Bobke II in public. I was dumb enough to read it in english class 3 weeks, and everyone would look at me when I'd randomly burst out laughing.

Bobke would rather you get good grades and into college...but after you start college, he'd probably respect your "independent study."

Full Blown set of park tools

I opened the Park tool school book and thought "...cool book, but i have no tools to do it all." Then after the kids were done, the wife said, wait one more... then busted out the toolbox, fully loaded.
And the park tool school at the LBS... the gift that keeps on giving....

I was doing it for class. They told us to read a book about a hero. I was like "Sh!t, all the cycling books are about Armstrong..." (Nothing against Armstrong, I just don't like his approach of "Tour Only"). The LBS... local book store (?) didn't have anything on Merckx but they had Bobke II. So while everyone read dry and boring books about Ghandi, I was rolling on the floor laughing reading my book. It only took 2 days to read, actually. I just kept reading it in English because we weren't done with the unit, and I was having too much fun reading Bobke II, so I kept rereading it.

I got a grand total of one gift, and that was from my wife:

A hooded sweatshirt.

I wasn't expecting much, but a hooded sweatshirt?

So, to compensate, I bought myself a nice Arc'teryx insulated jacket for skiing and climbing, and some PI Gavia tights and jacket for riding.
My wife bought me a scarf. Yes, a scarf. Last year, she gave me a Six13 with Chorus and K's. The year before that she gave me a Giant TCR 0 Comp also with Chorus and K's. Do you see a pattern here?

They are Sidi's new Genius 6.6. I ordered the Genius 5.5 in Titanium, but they were out, so they offered me these for an extra $30.00. I just got the CSC Sweep R so it will match great. Can't wait until they get here!

My wife got me a set of Fulcrum Racing 7 wheels in red to complete my bike rebuild, and I got her a pair of Sidi Genius 5 shoes. It's very cool having a wife who races!

Under Armor skull cap, PI socks,PI arm warmers, PI knee warmers, FSA K-Force light seatpost and FSA K-Wing handlebar -- and that was just from my mother in law.

I also got two Arundel carbon bottle cages and Zero Gravity brakes. And I'll probably get a trainer later this week.
