    Right around Christmas, Santa should be bringing me a Klatch with custom gearing, paint colors, and a dyno hub. Set up as a touring bike, but with big capacity for fat tires to get the heck off the roads.

    Gift courtesy of an insurance settlement from my crash in September. The elves are working on it right now.

    Santa is bringing me a Garmin Varia radar tail light. I may need to play around with mounting a bit since I have a rack and trunk bag on my main commuter, but I'm confident with some creativity and zip ties I will find a way to make it work.

    That is an insane deal! If you still have room on your wish list, I'd recommend immediately swapping the stock tires for Schwalbe Big Apples.

    Failing that, there's something like this: https://www.shapeways.com/product/L6...ionId=61176085

    Santa delivered new rain gear to me a little early (he didnít want me to have to drag it home across the Atlantic - so thoughtful of him!)

    Default Iím getting something for Christmas...

    Iíve got a smart phone mount, salsa cowchipper bars, lizard skin tape, and a craftsman beam torque wrench.

    But the big item I am asking for is $200 in gift cert money from a lbs to use toward a pair of winter cycling boots. Iíve got my eyes on the specialized defroster trail boots.

    No new bike for me this year .

    Nice. Winter cycling boots were an excellent addition to my gear. Theyíve been great for the days it gets into the 30s or less.

    I picked up a pair of Defrosters before last winter. They are good and warm. Specialized claims they run large so you don't need to size up for bulky socks. I did not find that to be the case. They fit with winter socks, but tighter than I would like.

    Thanks for the insight. I visited Spokes to try on Specialized shoes for size, and the rep told me they run in odd sizes. 9.6, 10.6, etc. I wear a 9.5 street shoe, so I want to be sure I donít go too big and lose my feet in the shoe.
