Episode 163 – The 2013 holiday buying guide

Episode 163 - The 2013 holiday buying guide November 27, 2013 ThePaceFINAL-300x116
After announcing something so grandiose, I feel like I should pay homage to Stan Lee and yell EXCELSIOR! But I'm not going to do that. Instead, what I'm going to do is say that we had a good time compiling this list of suggestions from the listeners, with special thanks to Rick, Matt Murto and Kelly Mills. Thanks so much, folks! These are all great suggestions, and we hope everyone has a good time with it. In addition to the guide, we want to announce that the raffle winner has been chosen for the Aeromoto Sport Air leather motorcycle jacket. And that winner is... (insert dramatic pause here...) James Enny. James, congratulations. Look for an email from us very soon and we'll get the jacket right out to you. Thank you to all the entrants, and to all the listeners for the ongoing support. We're a very lucky and fortunate couple of pod-gabbers. raffle James and I also want to announce that we've (re)opened The Pace Podcast online forums. The forums will include weekly show postings and feedback, discussion about other bike topics, a market place, and all sorts of chit-chat. Log in and create a forum account today at http://thepacepodcast.com/forums/. And now... links. Links for you, links for me, links to click and links to see!

Episode 55: What are you getting me for Christmas?

Ep 55 for Dec 5th, 2010 Happy Holidays!!! With a visit and a little help from Prubert Claus, James & I bring you some selections from our Holiday Gift List. We highlight some things that we have and can recommend, as well as make some suggestions that we... er... your loved ones would like to see under the tree. With our... uh... the listeners’ best interests in mind, we try to offer some suggestions that span the range of usefulness and silly, and at all the typical price points. Just for the record, I’m going to need tires by spring and I’m thinking a nice set of Pilot Road 2s in your standard 120/180 pairing would be great. Ya know... as an example. We also bring you some suggestions from the listeners by way of email and voice mail, and Prubert weighs in with some great additional ideas.
  • Glen Allison suggests heated gear. Any heated gear.
    • “No matter what it is, my wife bought me a heated jacket and it’s the greatest gift ever (rivals the birth of my son) I vote any heated gear.”
