Ideal cyclists birthday pressie- any ideas?

by Tmunnell   October 25, 2010  

Thinking As a non-cyclist I'm hoping someone can give me any ideas for a novel birthday present for my hubbie's 40th. I've already ordered a copy of le metier; subscribed him to rouleur - he likes cycling photography.Around the £100 mark ish. Thanks Thinking

Does he do DIY?

You could buy something from the Park Tools range?

Or a bike stand?

XTR cables?

Camelback?

I like my bike but it needs a hidden 25cc motor Smile

I have some of those, after reading a review on here, and they are lovely. Wear them all the time.

My wife took the hint although when she first looked at the site they were out of the Campagnolo links I directed her towards.

She asked should she get the other ones. Rolling Eyes

Even after 16 years of marriage you never know what sort of depraved ideas people have do you.

My dad is also a huge road biking fan and is always over the moon with a nice cycling top or some other appropriate item of clothing!
