    What a surprise for me
    So the wife knew I had been saving for a new hardtail and I just told her to not buy me anything for Christmas so I could have a little extra cash to put towards my new bike. I come down stairs Christmas morning to see this big box wrapped and I'm thinking 'what the heck is this!?' She says Santa came and that's yours. I opened it to find this:

    wow! I was speechless. I had been saving up for months and now all that money I saved can go towards the components!

    big change from the old 26'er I've been riding forever that still has rim brakes!

    You know, most threads that mention a wife or girlfriend generate comments saying they must see a picture of said wife or girlfriend.

    In this case, no picture needed!!

    NICE! Mine would've got me the Walmart FS 29er and told me that if I only shopped around, I would find great deals like she did.

    That's FANTASTIC Dude, as everyone else said in case you hadn't already realised it, Definite Keeper :D The real kicker to me is, not only did she get you a new frame, but she got you a Ti beauty and pays enough attention and/or cares enough to know your sizing. Absolutely lucky man, now hurry up and build it up.

    Holy $*&#! what a wife! You must've freaked out when you saw Moots. Mine got me a Go Pro and I didn't even know she knew what it was, so I'm not complaining.

    Nice! I got a fuzzy parrot with a cocktail in his hand that sings 'Don't Worry, Be Happy'...

    Sweet! Hope you got her something nice for Christmas. If not, better spend those savings on HER.

    Well, my girlfriend don't bring me nice presents like that, so I'd say it's worth a try to have her replaced.
