Christmas Wish List
So, since I have been cycle dreaming all Fall and Winter, I have cycled indoors on my trainer, on my spin bike, and I have ridden outside. Last weekend I rode 40 miles along the Erie Canal between DeWitt and Canastota. Because I am still riding my bicycles, I have been searching all over the internet for new ideas for gifts to buy my bicycles. I will share some of my thoughts:
I also would like the Cambium saddle for my road bike. The Cambium saddle is made of natural rubber and denim. It flexes beautifully and requires no break in period and little maintenance. Those are the Brooks saddles I would love to get for the Surly LHT and the CAAD 8.
Next, I would love to give a dynamo hub to my touring bike. Biologic Joule 3. I have watched so many videos on winter riding and long distance touring and lighting is essential.
I love this idea because I want to ride more, into the evening and into the winter. Both require lights to be seen and to see. The Joule 3, or other quality hub will allow me that capability. I need to reduce the running and increase the cycling to save my joints.
Following the dynamo hub, a good set of lights make a wonderful gift: dynamo powered lights for the Surly and rechargeable lights for the CAAD 8. The Nite Rider Lumina 750 would be much appreciated and make my late year and evening riding safe.
I don't ask for much, but if I could ask for something for myself, I would kindly request some cycling casual clothes. A nice pair of cycling jeans and a button down style shirt with wicking technology and well placed reflective material that can only be seen at night. There are many manufacturers out there designing some good looking stuff, but Club Ride looks the best and is the most functional on and off the bicycle.
When I go geo-caching or to the ice cream stand on my bike alone or with the kids, Club Ride clothes do not draw attention and scream, "Freak!" All people notice is a guy and his kids riding up for a cool treat to end a summer's day.
Get out there and ride. Be safe on the streets and sit in comfort and style with an awesome saddle from Brooks while dressed to the nines in Club Ride designs that can be seen because your lights are being powered by a Joule 3 Dynamo Hub. See you on the road.
