I’m terrible when it comes to giving Christmas presents. It takes me forever to come up with a good idea. Sometimes, I’ll receive hints, or even outright demands, but they’re for mundane things that don’t resonate with me. So I skip getting the thing someone wants, and get them what I think is cool. Sometimes it works. Often, it backfires.
So this year, I’m turning to you, the patient and forgiving readers of Bike Noob. I need some biking-related gift ideas. Now, I’m not going to run out and buy my friend’s brother-in-law a Pinarello Prince, so keep your suggestions within a reasonable price threshold.
To help generate some ideas, I’ll just toss out the suggestion (demand?) I gave Mrs. Noob:
Not the seat, or the seat post, but the water bottle cages. I know, not very imaginative, but I want one. What do you want, or suggest that I buy as a gift for my biking friend(s)?
