If you were wondering what kind of Christmas gift to get that cycling friend/relation of yours, you might want to have a look through Momentum magazine's online Christmas auction.
The Vancouver-based cycling advocacy mag is auctioning off everything from clothing to bags to inner tubes, all items that were sent to the magazine for review or just wound up lying around the office. The auction kicked off Thursday and runs until Monday. But based on the number of items that are already sold, you might want to check sooner rather than later.
Sadly, items can only be shipped to points in Canada. (So you out-of-country types will have to make friends with one of us...)
