    Hope Christmas gifts...post up what you got!

    Ok, so I decided to let my kids open up one gift tonight from us. My daughter got new shoes from mommy.

    Daddy on the other hand....bought himself and his son new full face helmets!! This is a first for both of us.
    I put it on him and he immediately asked to go ride his bike.
    So of course we were outside in under 2 minutes riding our bikes in the dark and light rain.

    Tomorrow should be awesome for the kiddies, but tonight was a memorable one for both of us. There is seriously nothing better than sharing your passion for riding with your kids.

    Maz, that's awesome. Sounds like you couldn't wait for Christmas morning even more than the kid. How is mom's pair of shoes going to compete with a full-face helmet? Totally set her up, Maz. My own boy is 3. This is the first Christmas he's really aware of what's going on. I just finished wrapping presents. Going to be fun in the morning.

    I will post the presents I got for myself this year:
    -Two pair of 5.10 shoes that I got 40% off on that sweet deal that showed up in the mtbr deals thread.
    -A set of Watson Cycles Parkarino TI handlebars.

    My wife got me one of those backyard metal fire pits. UPS truck couldn't really keep that one a secret with the big picture on the box.
    Noogie...Noogie...Noogie.

    My wife actually hinted to me to let him open up the helmet present. I think she was also just as excited as me. lol. Our son is 2 1/2 years old and our daughter is almost 4. So yeah they are both really into christmas and santa now.

    The best part about tonight was riding around the neighborhood in our new helmets.

    sounds like you got some nice gifts too this year. Time to roast some marshmallows!

    Nothing.
    I have a device that can access the total knowledge of man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and argue with strangers.

    New carbon Havoc bars on my Prime. I'm researching hard though another Christmas gift to myself, I'm leaning real heavily toward swapping the Pathfinder out for a Rubicon.

    Mods, can the three "What did Santa bring you?" threads (one each in Passion, and General Discussion, as well as this one) be combined?

    Just a thought.

    Maz- that full face for the boy is awesome!

    I got some new shoes to keep my feet on the pedals, a set of knee/shin guards (still on way) and a Nutri-Bullet to make smoothie blends to keep my energy up on the long epic rides 007 has been dragging me out on!

    Cool doggie, B&F.

    I've spent considerable time pouring over physical Jeep specs and prices. For what I'm going to do with it (to it), I figure that $15K is plenty to spend to take it out in the boondocks and scratch it all up, this puts me in pre 2007 Rubicon territory. As far as max tire size and ground clearance for the Jeep, my Pathfinder is already higher and I'm running as big of tires. The only real benefit to the Rubicon is 10" shorter wheel base and a locking rear differential. I've got 50hp and 30ft/lb more, and a lot more cargo capacity. I can install lockers in my Pathfinder and be $12K ahead of the game. I can buy a lot of carbon handlebars for $12K. So, today anyway, no Jeep.

    If you use the Pathfinder for anything more than a weekend warrior ride for thrashing around the on hillside, I would keep it. The Rubicon is a rough, bare bones vehicle, comparatively. Not a vehicle of refuge. My buddy had one and he didn't keep it very long. He used it as a daily driver around town. He said it was awful for that application.

    This is true. The wife had an 05 Jeep that we traded for a new Durango last year. Durango is so much nicer on the highway. A Jeep is a Jeep and will ride like one. But it's just cool to say you have a JEEP! Come on. But day to day driving, yeah, it's louder and a little rougher.

    Here is the wife's old ride-

    No clipless for me. As much as I have to get off the bike and push following 007 around, I need real shoes under my feet!

    Besides, Optimus says clipless are for weenies!!

    (Okay, maybe he didn't say that...)
