Made this thread last year but figured we can start again .

So obviously Christmas is coming , how is everyone ? Hopefully the holidays treat you well . I know a bunch of stuff went on sale for Black Friday , anyone get some goodies ? What are people asking for Christmas ?

I'm probably not going to get any bike related things as I'm not riding for the moment , but I might get myself some clothes .

I'm getting my son some nerf guns and star wars lego. The wife and I don't really want or need anything. I'll probably get a bit of money from my parents, and I'll treat the wife to something as I haven't told her about my custom frame yet haha

I can't wait for Christmas Break...sooo much free time for riding! Both on my BMX and MTB. The parks will be empty because it is "too cold"....perfect for me though.

I also probably won't get anythign bike related, but am giving some stuff to my step son and nieces. He gets a new upper detangler for his gyro (to accommodate the new Vandal Bars he got for his b-day). The girls will get helmets and pads for their newly acquired bikes from mom and dad.

Funny that I am not really Christian anymore, but I still look at this time of year as a time for introspection and faith seeking. In all religions, this is one of the high holidays. The path I follow now has always looked at this time of year as a time to slow down, be close to family and home. time to refresh and prepare for the coming year. Also a time to get out into nature and be a part of that as well. Hippy stuff....I know

Hope everyone stays safe and has a good, relaxing Holidays. Take a bit of time to reflect on things that surround you in your life!! Celebrate the good; make plans to change the bad; find peace!

I treated myself to a fit savage frame for $220 on albes and a united parts kit 15% off from dans. Waiting for my crank bolt to come hopefully tomorrow to finish putting it together. It feels nice knowing everything on my bike is brand new as I've never experienced that before lol

Well done Gotta show this to my little kids. They're not old enough to worry about actual grades quite yet, but they've done well too so some glow in the dark Stolen grips and a Fit Key logo winter hat are in their future, plus a new bb & maybe new brakes.

I bought myself a WTP Atlas(well I sold a bass guitar to buy it but it's my present to me). My wife got me a new helmet as mine was 15 years old and crappy even when it was new - I only bought It so I could ride a skatepark so I bought the cheapest one they had so I could still buy beer. My parents bought my 4 year old son a Mirraco Wedge 16" and my wife and I are buying him a full face helmet so he can ride the track in spring and learn to ride trails if he wants. I'm getting my wife a new helmet because her's is cheesey cycling helmet that she won't wear because it looks ridiculous and isn't very comfortable. I'll probably get a pair of gloves too because I can still get a day or two of riding in week but even when it's dry it's damp/lil' chilly. Pretty bikey holiday season.

It was a Peavey T-40. I bought it about 10 years ago for 300 bucks and sold it for 800. Pretty much what my bike came to. It was a nice bass but I have a Squire Bass VI and an Epiphone Ripper and I hadn't even touched the Peavey in a year so I thought someone who will play it should have it and I could get a new bike.

Lol, damn, you think she'll flip when she hears? Are you getting your frame thru 6160? Kyle hit me up a couple weeks ago with an offer on custom frames that was better than most of the sales on Danscomp so I took it. Either way, no wife to explain the expense to but I'll be selling my current and last frames soon to cover it.

They're made by cult, but their called the cult vans tire, and the treads are the same as the waffle pattern on the bottom of vans shoes. I think Adam lz has those tires

Haha, I told her the other day, she's cool with it but brings it up jokingly when we want to spend money on something else. And she's expecting something special from me now.
I'm getting an fbm custom, because fbm. It will be awesome! And should be here before Xmas! Only bad thing is I sold my frame to afford the final payment on it, so I'm bikeless now #sadface

ah ha. Yes, it is definitely better to have a bike you will ride, than a bass that is gathering dust. I don't get how some guys have more than 5 basses. Our guitar player has something like 35 guitars...I have 4 basses and feel bad that they al don't get used equally...but I am a pack rat and can't let them go. I also don't get how some people have more than 2-3 bikes as well. I guess it is b/c I live no where close to the 1%, so I get one or 2 solid things, and then I keep em, forever
