So what have you asked for or treating yourself to?

Put my request in for a pair of sealskinz socks and some of those waterproof car seat covers. And since I've been particularly good this year, may also pick up a cheapo '29er... not hip enough to go fixie, so I may settle for the big wheels instead.

Bloody hell, that was a good deal. Was leaning towards the Haro Mary, but keeping an open mind.

Klunkerz, now there's a thought :)

Yep, Klunkerz is a cool film and buying a copy helps out the small indy film maker that took on some serious debt to bring the story to the masses. Go direct to the website http://www.Klunkerz.com to order a copy. This way all the funds go to Billy and his huge re-mortgage.

Cheers

Cheapest 29er currently about that i'm aware of is a DB Mohito, alloy job in SS format but using a tensioner so can be upgraded gearing wise. Think its sub £400 complete so not bad. On-one 29er frames are quite cheap too :)

I've not Xmas bike stuff plans, just boring stuff like headsets to source :roll:

ZZ go for the 29er :D IMO nothing less than a Steve Potts will do.


I've asked for a new hydration pack and a new commuting bag, and unless the wifes worked out I want a merlin/moots/litespeed/SAB/EWR/San An/Kestrel that'll be it.

Ah, feeling the Moots love eh Kai?? Fitted the barmy Jones H Bars last night. Big problem is that mounting the Hope levers has robbed one of the most useful hand positions :evil: Looks cool though. Just waiting on a tensioner and a tyre and its all systems go.
