Xmas List (what's on yours?)

Postby Gunnsie » Fri Nov 01, 2013 11:52 am

Hi All,

So with the Xmas period coming up, I was just curious what people have put on their list?
After some inspiration!

So far on mine I have: -

Deda 100 Stem
Deda RS02 Seatpost
Saddle (undecided which one though)
Maintenence stand
Gilet
Light reactive glasses

I'm sure there is more that I will see between now and then that I will be adding.

Chris

The project rainbow book for the stocking.

A Canyon Ultimate of some description ready for spring. Ive started the subtle campaign to soften the initial negotiations.

For example, the canyon brochure has been left on the coffee table all week. The ipad Internet page is always left on the canyon site. She is thick as pig sh*t so I doubt it has been noticed.

well I need 5 tubs for next season so they're on my list.
Already bought a lazer genesis helmet and soon to buy a castelli fawesome gillet.
Would like a pair of rollers and maybe 3 Vittoria corsa SC tubs, 1 Vittoria crono cs, 2 Veloflex master clinchers
Need another chorus cassette.
Could do with a pair of rollers too.
My road bike is going in for a custom paint job but I'll be paying for that.

I'm working on getting my bike below 6kg so if someone fancies bringing me a super light frame rather than the current carbon not so light thing that'd be great.

I want my carbon fibre fix badly, so likely to be 5.2 metres of racing kayak with a custom paintjob - will probably mean having to sell one of my bikes though :-(
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

a new chainset for my new bike, but not sure which one as the Shimano
Ultegra that's on is ugly..... :wink:

Mavic Softshell
Fizik R1 shoes. Still undecided on the black or White. Love the white but think they would look awful after a bit of dirt gets into them
Cannondale Caad8
Canyon Aeroad 8.0

Have a new Planet X cyclocross bike on order that I might leave in the box until Chritmas day, plus a new TV and aerial for the camper.

Nice, K1 then, do you paddle on the Basingstoke Canal, used to race myself, still have my Cougar but haven't been out in it for years!

Christmas has come early for me. I went crazy on the Apple website today and bought an iPad Air, a Wahoo Kickr, Wahoo HRM and a Wahoo Speed/Cadence sensor. Should get them on Monday or Tuesday so my winter's training is sorted now.

Yes, Basingstoke Canal is at the end of my road - I can simply sling a kayak over my shoulder and walk 50m for a paddle. Until this summer, I last raced in my teens - it's nice to learn a new skill and it does wonders for my core body strength.

I used to race with BCCC when they were still based in Fleet at the wharf, good luck with getting back into it, might see you on the water if I ever dust the K1 down!
