Bizarre. Really, my fleece lined Nalini bibs work quite well.

Sad part is that "saddle" looks very similar to some of the solid metal or solid composite saddles I've seen pushed over the past year.

I thought too much starch in the collars was bad.

Just when you think you've seen it all (bicycle accessory wise) someone comes up with something like this. Ya gotta love stuff like this; i.e. even if it doesn't work it has some momentary entertainment value!

Isn't that bike owned by Dick Cheny? I heard that he loans it to prospective suiters who he is interviewing for his daughters.

All he has to do is get it out and George W approves whatever he asks.

We only come up with the basic concept. We leave it to the rest of the world to refine- modify and then try to use.

But one usefull item I saw about 5 years ago were handwarmers. One of my mates had a set and they worked off a rechargable battery and were like an electric blanket on an inner glove. They worked fine till he did a wet ride and a short circuit occured.

Don't fancy that with the Butt warmer.
