I took my bike for a nice snowy ride in Post Canyon before having dinner with the family, and later in the evening stripped off the Rampage and Stout, tubes, and Gorilla tape, and fit the Flows up with some new Stan's yellow tape and removable-core valve stems (from mikesee) and Ardent 2.4s (LBS). The beads set easily with a little soapy water and my floor pump, and I squirted 50-60ml of Stan's sealant through the valves. Now that the sealant has set up overnight, I'm debating how much more Stan's and/or tubeless Slime to add.

I love my bike. What was under the tree for yours?

We're on the same page. Set-up my Industry Nine / ZTR arch hoop weelset with Wolverines to tubeless last night.

The best presents I gave to my bike were the ones to my wife that open the door for me to buy more toys. For her: new bike socks times 3, lock-on grips to match her c'dale rise, a QR seatpost binder, Kreig saddlebag in cow, pearlizumi insulated knickers, pearlizumi long sleeve jersey in black, and lastly, for her birthday on Tuesday - a Garmin 705.

Well I got a new frame to work on for a while with some brooks grips and my gf (who bought me a boone cog/chainring last year) gave me a dt swiss xmc 80 for my jabberwocky... needless to say it was a good Christmas.

For my Dos Niner, I gave her a new Salsa ProMoto low rise carbon bar and a pair of the black Pepper Jack grips. I was thinking of a late Christmas gift like that cool carbon TruVativ crankset like GT554 has...

Got a really, really nice gift card and some cash to spend at Universal Cycles, probably get a set of Magura Martas, X9 Shifters and X9 derailleur for a build I have in the works.

My bike got an SDG I-beam seat and post. Then I gave it a bit of well deserved rest.

After a period of snow, we now have daytime thaw and nighttime freeze... The trails turned to ice - not good.

The wife picked up a bike trainer for my Spesh. I think she's trying to tell me something... :eek:

Bunyan - that's a pretty nice trainer! FYI - when I use mine (in the garage) on my roadie, there is a very fine black powder that ends up behind the roller - presumably rubber. Just thought I'd let you know so the wife doesn't get all P'O'ed when you screw up the living room carpet :)

---
My 29er didn't get anything - but the pilot got some Atomic Orange Oakley Jawbones w/ Persimmon lenses so he can see uber-well on the trail and look good to boot. My fourth pair of Oakely's, but first solely purchased for riding. NO mistaking that they are orange!

I have a pair of Half Jackets with persimmon prescription lenses. They're bright enough that I can wear them driving at night.
