Bike Stuff Under The Tree?

This year we were a little restrained in using Christmas as an excuse to buy bike parts, but I saw some friends out there cleaning up with all kinds of droolworthy goodies.

James, from Sponge Bear, got his daughter off right with a new bike, and Virginia, the former blogger from Cycling Taiwan, found SRAM Red in her stocking.

I ended up having to buy a new bottom bracket for my bike. For at least a couple weeks I have been chugging along on a squishy, barely operational BB. After over 25,000km it finally had enough. The new one is spinning so smooth and stiff.... ahhhhh!

I also picked up a stronger pump for trips further afield. I just don't trust my CO2 very much when I am far from a trying my luck at a pump equipped 7-11. I bought this slim little LEZYNE frame pump for my mountain rides.

I hope all of you had a happy holiday, whether you celebrate Christmas or not. An excuse to get outfitted with more bike stuff should never be overlooked.

Anyone else get bike goodies?
