I've been reading a little about this dreaded "dork disk." Now that I know what it is I need to know what to do about it. If I remove it what are the chances I will regret the decision when I have a chain come off and tear things up? On the other hand, will I now have to go around hoping the cool guy with the tight bike shorts and colorful jersey riding the $2,000 bike will not be laughing at me when he passes... Now I've always been practical before cool...well at least in my later years...so I need some help here, cool or practical?
And while I'm at it, what about helmets? Do most of you wear them? At first I felt like a little kid but now I think they're a good thing...any thoughts?
