I emailed my lovely wife yesterday with what I thought was the perfect christmas gift: The WinePod. In these troubling economic times, who wouldn't want to spend $8,999.00 on a stainless steel machine that will make your own wine? It just makes good financial sense.
But then I found something from the good folks at Hammacher Schlemmer that is perfect for the cyclist on your list: The Only Complete Swiss Army Knife.
It has seven blades, three types of pliers, three golf tools (club face cleaner, shoe spike wrench, and divot repair tool), 25 flat- and Phillips-head screwdrivers and bits, saws, wrenches, and more. It also has a bicycle chain rivet setter, signal whistle, 12/20-gauge shotgun choke tube tool, combination fish scaler, hook disgorger, and line guide tool, cigar-cutting scissors, laser pointer, tire-tread gauge, toothpick, tweezers, and key ring.
That's 87 different functions for only $1400. When you break it down, it's just over $16 per function. They're practically giving this stuff away! I'll probably need a custom built saddle bag to haul this thing.
