    Any recommendaitons for thin but very warm full-finger cycling gloves? I've got some neoprene and calfskin gloves with a padded palm that are made for working with power tools that work very well down to about 45 F but at 30 something degrees my fingers are getting numb even on fairly short rides.

    For my wife: Do you know of any lightly padded women's cycling shorts that don't have the elastic band on the thigh? She doesn't mind spandex but something more relaxed, like a MTB short would be more to her liking. I bought her a pair this summer but she finds the sticky elastic band at the bottom of the legs uncomfortable.

    My birthday is in December. Yeah, that sucked growing up as a kid. This year I'm buying myself a Garmin Edge 800 bundle for birthday/Christmas.

    I feel your pain. Mine was/is just a few days before Christmas, and the usual refrain from my parents when I was a kid was, "Do you want a bit more expensive Christmas presents and no birthday present(s), or do you want cheaper presents on both days?" I should have answered, "I want you guys to go back in time and better plan your seed planting so that I don't get screwed in the very short interval between Christmas and my birthday."

    I have a December birthday. I used to get "Combo" gifts. One gift to cover both Birthday and Christmas.

    Gifts for cyclists? Wow! That's a tall order. I am a golfer and I used to get all sorts of golf-related gifts from balls to cheap gadgets. That sort of wore out it's usefulness. Now that I am into cycling I am hoping the family doesn't get on the gadget train for bikes. My hope is if that's the direction they want to take in a gift for me they will at least ask. My oldest son is a cyclist so he can be their guide. He gave me a really nice merino jersey two years ago (yes, I am spoiled). I think if you live in cold weather climate, gloves, caps, foot protection, etc. are always going to be useful Christmas gifts. Cycling gear is generally a bit pricey so unless your family/friends have deep pockets ($$) keeping the list to smaller things is best.

    Getting screwed when you were a kid sucks and I feel for you. Getting screwed as an adult is important so I am sending you a hooker dressed as Marisa Tomei swinging a chain whip so you can get properly screwed.

    Funds are low so this will have to cover both Christmas and your birthday.
