    I haven't taken a photo of it yet, but I am ecstatic that I finally got a rack for my car. It's taking me time to get the basic biking gear and goodies, but little by little, I am getting there. This one will go on the rear of my hatchback, and handles two bikes. Works for me, since I'm almost always biking alone.

    Here's my gift.The only problem is I can't stand riding geared mtn bikes. I'll ride it a few times and it'll start collecting dust like the bikes before it.Maybe this one will be different. I'm very thankfull I got the bike but this is a yearly thing I go through.

    I'll spare you the agony of riding a geared bike. I'll give you fifty american dollars for it.

    I recieved a fuji cross comp from my parents, and it is very nice. I will take some pics of it tommrow. Also it is raining and the snow is melting, so I also consider that a gift, because I could actually ride on the trail without going slow. I hope everyone had a good Christmas or holiday.

    Not sure I understand here. Are you complaining? So, you annually get a new bike that you don't want? If their collecting dust, sell 'em off.

    Who buys a $5500.00 bicycle for someone that they don't want..........every year? Sounds like you have some communication problems in your household.

    If you think riding a geared bike is so terrible, I'll take a hit and trade you my SS for that!

    my gift

    was the excitement of my 5 year old w/ her first "mountain bike." She's stoked! The pic's aren't the best, but you can see the excitement in her face i one of the pic's. She's still figuring out the handbrakes, and gears.

    Her happyness made the xmas day the greatest!

    Oh yea, I got a pair of wool Defeet's and NWD VI...

    I got a set of cycleops rollers. Much better than the trainer for surviving long winters.

    Fisher 293. Stock for now. Can't think of anything I need to add/change except a decent saddle.

    ... and if we just ... Aloha~

    ~Congrats Beck!! Tis the season. Is that the fiance's bike next to it?~

    Hope everyone is faring well with the holidays! I bought myself a Christmas present but cheated and started riding a few days before Christmas...and boy was it worth it!!!

    After 10-15 miles or so ice riding on Friday night my bum said no to the Selle Italia ti Flite gel. I splurged and got a Terry Fly ti that is more form fitting...not to mention that so far I love this bike. Now my rigid (ghetto) yet lovable ss, has some companionship in the stable.



    Gotta love how environmentally friendly ice riding is too!

    Bring it up to the trail and I'll keep the dust knocked off of her for ya!
    The standing eight count & three knockdown rules are in effect on this trail.
