With the snow falling here in the Mid-West, it makes me realize that my shopping (and shipping) days are numbered before the holidays. And even more alarmingly... I've realized I don't know what my Ventana wants.

So what are you getting your Ventana for the holidays?

I'm thinking one of those $25 dollar Christmas tree ornaments/headtube badges might be in order in addition to some new pedals and the improved main pivot kit.

And I have been a good boy. My wife is going to get a lot for Christmas too as she has been a naughty girl this year!

The size of my bone us will determine the depth of upgraditis for my beloved Chamuco. In order of priority:
New HayesHydro Discs-Bonus will determine which model! 8" front, 6" rear
New Wheelset-Hope Hubs, Rims-TBD
Thomson Stem 90 mm
FSA Carbon riser bar
Race Face Deus Crankset
Nokian studded tire set to replace el cheapo studs
New WTB 2.24 MotoRaptors F/R
And finally, I'll put my ho made custom headbadge on her to make my demon just a bit more evil! :D

I'm hoping to give my Pantera a lot of time on the trail this holiday season. That will be my present to her.... to ride her again and again! (man does that sound ... yea)

I seem to be on a two to three ride minimum between breaking some component and being off the bike for a couple weeks.

If I can ride it and keep it functioning I'll be happy and I'm sure it will love the attention!


My Pantera is currently loving the Romic she's been sporting for a few weeks. She's almost forgot what it was like with the Swinger.... once it comes back from Manitou I'll have to give her a reminder. Maybe she'll appreciate the weight loss.... maybe not.

Realized I never answered my own question. :)

My Feugo's getting a heavier set of tires.
A lighter set of wheels and rotors.
A new set of brake levers. (already installed)
A new seat and grips.

And finally a rider who isn't broken. Too bad I'm too much of a wimp to ride in the snow. Current temp - 8 deg. Bleh.
