- 40th Birthday pressie
So, my biggie is not too far away and I’m thinking about stuff I’d like. I’m kinda thinking something that I wouldn’t want to replace after a few years or won’t become obsolete, such as a tablet and other such gadgetry.
My current thinking is a watch. However, I don’t like metal straps and leather ones are too impractical, so I always go for polyurethane straps. Any recommendations? Price-wise, I’m thinking around a couple of hundred quid (which rules out a titanium roadie frame, unfortunately).Posted 3 years agojamiepMember
I’m 40 in a fortnight and have really struggled to come up with gift ideas. If I want something I buy it. And was concerned that I’d use a bike-related present and then it just wear out and so it isn’t special.
I’ve asked for a bit of money. Not as impersonal as it sounds. Putting it to a skills day and few days away riding, which I will remember for much longer than a thing.

What don’t you like about metal straps?
If like me it’s that they pull your arm hair then look at something like skagen as their metal straps are very fine links which don’t do that. I love my one :Posted 3 years agoSpudMember
Mine is fast approaching too. TDF weekend and so long as Mrs Spud is well enough we’ll be up there. Was all set for a custom steel rod frame, but I’m not really riding much so canned that for now. I have no idea otherwise, like Jamiep, I tend to get what I want as and when.Posted 3 years ago
