Decided it was way too cold to do any work myself so I had the new saddle, pedals and tires put on at the shop.

yes? :o is a nice bike. Titanium or aluminum?

I´m very happy too with my dura ace. Only loses around 60 grs if you compare with the Ultegra crankset but the dura ace look is IMO very beautiful.

I live 10 minutes drive from my shop and I ended up having to mail them a check recently. They were doing their annual bike drive for local kids and I bought 2 kids a bike.

It is depressing how little time I have for anything not work or kids during daylight hours.

So here is Xavier's new kit he got for Satanmas, from helmet down to socks. He was so super excited, and I got one of the biggest hugs of my life when he opened this.

An even bigger hug was a little while ago when I told him that if he gave me a large part of the $$$ he's saved up, I'd help him get a new road bike, since he's outgrowing his.

Our goal is 1500 miles in 2017; should be an interesting year.

Diamondback Podium 700c 46cm... which will be replacing his Diamondback Podium 650c, which fit fine in October, and now his knees hit the bars if he's not careful, as of November.

I can't wait to get this thing here and built.

And got some new silicone grips and 45Nrth pogies for winter rides. Update: Did a ride in the 8 degree, 10+ MPH wind neighborhood with no gloves underneath the pogies in complete comfort.  These things are awesome.

Yep! The frostbite culture is way overrated!

I use similar for my scooter.  Trust me, on cold days they're necessary as hell, and anyone who thinks I'm a cold weather wimp doesn't know me at all. Also consider wind chill at 60 mph on a 38 degree day.

Speaking of crazy ass cold riding, we signed up for a fatbike, beer and chili ride this weekend where the temps will be a balmy 20ish degrees with wind.  Reserved an electric Specialized fatbike for Kasia which should be a cool ride and I am providing my own or borrowing a CF Salsa for my ride.

While I got tons of base layers for Xmas, I need to find something for Kasia.  What are the bike nerd accepted base layers these days, Craft?
