Christmas presents for me with a bicycle theme are pretty much a guaranteed success, so no surprise that this was a part of my seasonal "haul" for 2012.
The bell is another Dring! Dring!, which will grace my orange-and-red road bike come spring. I was given my first Dring! Dring! by my son and daughter-in-law after they found the hand-painted bike bells in a Quebec City shop. Then HMV brought in a boxload for their stores at Christmas. They still have some on the shelves.
Extreme X-Bikes is a cubicle time-waster: a bicycle you can take apart and re-assemble, complete with teeny tiny bicycle tools. I'm looking forward rebuilding it as an art object.
Just Ride, by Grant Petersen, is the subject for a separate post. But if the weather is unsuitable for bicycle riding, you can't go wrong with bicycle reading.
