    I got some novelty toilet roll and a Britain by bike book which has the added bonus of pics of the sexy Clare balding in baggy shorts.

    Congrats DD.

    Only cycling thing I got was Mountain High by Daniel Friebe.
    Amazing pictures.

    Castelli Radiation jacket - now slightly used with a few mud splatters - lovely! After crashing on a ride one Xmas morning and trashing a whole load of Assos kit, as well as suffering painful bruising and grazing, you won't know how relieved I was to arrive home intact!

    I got nothing cycling related.

    Then again, people who buy me cycling stuff tend to have the worst taste in the world.

    Very best wishes to DD & OmarB. :D. Very, very happy for you!

    Got no cycling giftage yet, but visiting the family tomorrow, so fingers crossed.

    That's if I'm still alive. I went out for a ride a 10am this morning and apparently I said I would be back within 2 hours without fail. Got back at 5pm. I currently stand accused of planning the whole thing, then lying about my intentions. I was observed fitting the pannier rack and pannier, making ham sandwiches and swiping 4 bananas, plus two bottles of water. From this evidence it has been concluded (by someone who knows nothing about cycling) that my intention was a day trip.
  • Fizik Arione Versus now fitted to the CAAD9. Planning a short ride on the fast machine tomorrow.

  • Black Specialized Prevail helmet. Happy boy :-)
  • NapoleonDNapoleonD Posts: 18,632
    Good choice. I got one and wore it once. It shattered big time. However my head didn't even get a bruise (I broke my back and smashed my shoulder though).
    I landed on my head/shoulder at over 30mph...
    So I can vouch for their crash protection...

    Relative newcomer but hope you don't mind me posting in this thread. Brooks team pro (copper, honey). I don't get on with modern saddles and wanted something 'racier' than my B17. V happy.

    Congrats DD, hope there is a section in the church reserved for the BR members ;)

    Nothing cycling related for me but to be honest I wasn't holding out for an SRM to be under the tree, maybe next year.
