    OT: What Do You Really Want for Christmas?

    I know all you fine people love your lawnmowers, ties, and camaros but tell me a secret....what do you really want? Bike related or not!

    I'll start: I'd like a point and shoot camera that is nicer than the regular teeny ones at Costco or maybe a custom suspension corrected 1" rigid fork or clothes or shoes or, or, or.....

    p.s. happy holidays, bike geeks.

    Those pictures are fodder for some good titles - some of which are NWS

    On to the original question:

    Santa,
    For Christmas I would like to get one or both of these:








    In fact, could use the gravel in that first picture for my dog run, so I'm askin' for that too ...
    Wanted: more of the same ... but different

    Forks!

    Either a Z2 Atom Bomb to match the one on my Kona:


    Or an X Fly:


    Those era of forks are harder to find these days. I have been using the one on my Kona since I bought it new back in '97 with no problems, still works like it is brand new. Hopefully I will use some holiday cash to grab one up on e-bay.

    At first I thought you bought one of these:

    I knew the bike was gone but the gravel ... oh the humanity ...

    But then again, you never know what might pop up ... and unfortunately for me, I'll be a minute too late ...

    Platform pedals for my mb-3. Brake pads for the whole fleet, and some 4wheeler parts
    All vintage all the time. Nothing like a nice chromo frame with some properly adjusted cantilevers.

    You must be thinking of the genie....but I love your list. I used to wonder, why wouldn't one of your wishes be another 3 wishes?

    2. A concealed carry holster for my Ruger LC9

    3. A concealed carry holster for my Smith & Wesson Sigma 9mm

    4. A Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22

    5. A Ballester Molina .45 ACP

    Judy XC Crown w/ 1" threaded steerer.
    Salsa Pro Moto Stem, 120mm.
    M900 group (except for the shifters - already have those).

    Maybe also some front springs and an un-cracked exhaust manifold for my pickup.

    A job with satisfying and enjoyable work, regular hours, a livable wage, and room to grow. I know it is a lot to ask, but I would love it if this dream job also left my soul intact.

    These days, it seems more realistic to ask for something like world peace :/

    That is what I really, REALLY want, more than any stuff.

    If Santa were an arsonist I'd appreciate an 8 minute heads-up to get the family out, save the art, a bag of clothes and a couple of bikes. Otherwise - burn muther****r, burn...

    I hope all the Christmas love is lavished on the folks who lost a ton this year.

    Good post. Had to leave my dogs in Mexico and come to Brasil. I WILL bring them here in February. I would like to be w/them Christmas night. It won't happen though.
