    A new frameset courtesy of Mr Bob Parlee. Just finalised the custom paint job....should be here in time for build up over Christmas. I'm more excited about Christmas than my two pre-school daughters are.
  • New mech and hanger for my MTB (after snapping my hanger in Wales about a month back)...

    A pair of Atomic Theory all mountain skis. It looks like it will be a good season this year with a lot of resorts opening early.
  • A 2008 Ciocc Morpho with Dura Ace SRAM & wheels. I've been asking around for any comments on them - good or bad but not really had much response. Which is good because I like to be different. These clearly are. Perhaps not your new technology or performance but I really like the look of them. Italian so it can't be that bad..
  • A Super Record 11speed rear mech and shifters.

    I will pick up a front mech and fit it all for when spring comes.

    with all the spare parts in my garage i might have a winter bike built up for next year soon.
    Wilier Cento Uno SR 2013 in Fluro Yellow
    Cannondale Caad10 2014 in BLACK!!

    Nice. I usually stick to Nordica or Scott (naturally), but the Amer Sports stuff rides well.

    Thanks for the link. That's the watch I want to add to my collection. Unfortunately, they are no longer made.
    I've contacted the owner to ascertain the watch's status. Wish me luck. :)

    Keeping it a bit low key this year. So far I've spent £15k on a new car £3k on a new watch and had a titanium road bike come into my castle. Daren't ask Santa for too much haha

    Bloody hell, you can buy a new car for £15k? DOes it come with an engine and stuff?

    in the real world, yes

    Black Crows Sevuns

    ...and possibly a Ti cross frame, if I'm very very good. Kinesis Decade ATR looks likely, but also tempted by a Lynskey Cooper or a Van Nic Amazon Cross.

    But I have bought, er, quite a lot of kit this year already (including 2 bikes), so I have to watch out for meaningful stares across the breakfast table.

    Fingers crossed it's still available.

    Getting my turbo dungeon back in operation again and the Sufferfest vids to go with it. And probably the TrainerRoad too. I spoil myself sometimes.
  • Just order a turbo trainer should be here in a few days :)
  • A CO2 tyre inflator, which arrived this morning, and its on the bike already.
    So I can't wrap it up.
    So its not really a present.

    Perhaps I should treat myself to something else?

    I need all that and more. Need a frame to put it on!

    How loaded are you going? I'm seeing just how minimalist I can get away with...

    Just a cheeky plug here - ive listed my 3 week old cycleops fluid 2 trainer and riser block over on the road> spare parts section.
    If anyone wants to treat themselves to a brand new turbo, give me a shout!
  • Treated myself to a Castelli Gabba jacket, Sorpasso Bibshorts & Craft Windstopper base layer. Money well spent!
  • Ice axe and a pair of crampons.....

    As light as possible, plan on sleeping when tired in a bivvy, I did some prep rides this year with a tent at around 12kg all in, so can drop a little weight as wont be taking pub clothes.
  • Short term: New pair of Woolie Boolies & another K Edge Garmin mount

    I have avoided cycling related xmas purchases due to recent house move so my focus has been on DIY (I know, I know).

    This has resulted in my 1st ever Makita Cordless Drill /Driver and 100 piece accessories set, along with 2 lithium ion batteries and apprporpriate 30 min charger.

    As far as power tools go it is very good.
