All I want for Christmas

All I want for Christmas is a wheelset. And maybe a new rainjacket. How about you?

BERLIN, GERMANY - DECEMBER 19: A man rides a bicycle past parked cars covered in ice and snow on a frigid day on December 19, 2010 in Berlin, Germany.

I wasn’t at last Friday’s San Jose Bike Party because I was at a friend’s Christmas party, where we feasted on tamales, cake, and sangria flavored sodas. I’m told about 200 showed up, including a guy sitting in a Santa sleigh, and somebody else pulling a Christmas tree! San Jose Bike Blog has a couple of photos from the December ride.

I posted photos of my bicycle Christmas tree ornaments last weekend and have since ran across a few others. RL took an old cog and polished it up as a Christmas ornament. Gersemalina in DC has a nice collection of bicycle ornaments, including a cute tiny bike helmet. I like this bright yellow bike in a green tree.

    Same here…I’d love @santabikes to bring me a Wheelset. Here’s hoping we get it, my friend.

    I’m wishing for a new bike rack for the car. Saris Bones RS, perhaps? http://azurl.net/B001BEHWDW

    I have an older all plastic 3 bike Saris Bones — it’s been rock solid and I’ve been very pleased with it.
