    Valve Caps

    Bought some new valve caps today, to match the beloved 8-Ball bell on my backup commuter. Sometimes it's the little things that make commuting more fun.

    Now you need a 'nutcase' bike/skate helmet, or another
    of type, for the 8-ball graphics they offer.

    I've been looking long and hard at the Nutcase. Just can't decide whether it would be too hot for a 30-mile commute.

    The caps came from Walmart of all places. The bell is an Electra from Amazon.

    I've even thought about doing some custom leather work on the bike's Brooks B68 saddle, to add an 8-ball graphic. Just don't know if the white paint would hold up.
