    I can't decide between a rockshox reverb or hope pro 2's laced to ztr flows for my rune. My current wheelset is heavier than shi* for pedaling around, but they are bombproof and the seatpost is cheaper...

    I get three paychecks in the month of December, so with that extra paycheck I'm planning on getting a Lyrik Coil paired up with a new wheelset: Mavic EN521 Rims over DT Swiss 240s hubs.

    I'm not much for surprises so I already picked up a nicely upped 2009 Demo 7. However, I just ordered a new Atomlab Pimplite rim for the rear that I'll be building up for it

    I already got myself an AR-15 and citizen eco-drive calibre 8700. But **** it, I'm thinking about a new bike anyway. I told my wife I'm a minimalist and she laughed.

    I like the 'chassis' SMT has on his list, although I'd trade the Patron for a nice Macallan, even only a 15 or 18 yr old.

    What I'll tell my wife though is that I want some Saint or Hope Tech V2 brakes for the big bike, and some matching body armor ... I think of it as crash-prophelatics. :^)

    Hopefully some Juicy Ultimates or something comparable. Or.....if I get enough financial aid for school, a Blindside frame.
    Go ride your bike.

    Put down a healthy deposit and ordered one of these...in white...yep I'm that old.

    Why white? Police tend not to "see" white sports cars. Probably won't be here for Christmas but I have been saving for a long time and wanted a 2011 model...I am a patient man.

    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    I was all set to order one of those Factory Five Cobra kit cars and build it myself but after sitting down and doing the costs and figuring it would take me 3-5 years to build what I wanted...I figured screw it, lifes too short and I can finance this at rock bottom rates and get something with the horsepower I wanted with a warranty ready to rock out of the box...not to mention better resale value.

    Life gets better after 40 gents, save your money.

    Chromag Ranger Stem - 70mm in black or silver, even thinking about red.

    Well me and the wife just bought new bikes (2010 delirium for me and 2010 SX trail for her) so those were technically our christmas presents but I have a few more things on the list

    2011 formula the One brakes
    2 rock shox reverb posts (one for me and one for her)
    stylo oct or maybe atlas FR cranks
    2.5 schwalbe muddy mary's

    camelbak the don or maybe capo
    661 evo elbow pads (wishing i had these 2 days ago. im typing this in pain with a really swollen/cut up elbow)

    And my christmas wish would be to sell the $3000 worth of extra bikes and parts that i have laying around this place... If anyone needs some nice mid to high end parts at a good deal to make their christmas better than let me know

    Haha, I was gonna make an age joke! I don't know why you don't see more young guys driving vettes. They're one of the few things GM has gotten right, and the ZR1 is badaaaaaaaass!

    I was talking to a sales manager a few weeks ago that had C6 Z06. White, blacked out windows and black wheels. A few mods, including pushbutton exhaust bypass, I doubt that one would fly under the radar.

    Enjoy it in the best of health, thats an awesome ride!

    A 2011 Demo 8 One

    Wasn't intended as an Xmas present but seems to be turning into one seeing as how it was suppose to be here in September when I first ordered it. Now late November ETA

    Picked up a Carbon D2 on chainlove for a steal. And and a whole lot of physical therapy so my ACL surgery will heal up right so I can ride in a few months.
