N+1 What I Want Next...

We have bike computers, HR monitors, GPS devices, assisted shifting mechanisms, carbon this, titanium that, you name it, it's available. But one thing has been sadly overlooked.

On my next bike, I want it to come with a private loo.

Just sayin'

That's what the padded chamois is for.

You might want to be sure you leave home with a full tank.

A "loo?" Never heard that one before.

Frankly, I don't trust you to not flush it as you are riding.

If I were riding with you, I'd feel safer if you were wearing Depends.

What would a normal person think of a thread like this?

I don't believe normal people read this forum. Just my opinion, as a regular here.

Well, it's like this. I actually have a spouse who appears to be relatively normal as well as some friends, and co-workers with seemingly normal tendencies. When I tell them about what goes on here, they look at me like I'm deranged. From now on, I think I'll keep my mouth shut.

JT, there are probably people who think of you as being "normal."

Just keep that in mind when you regard others as being "normal." Who knows what your "normal" friends are doing on the internet.

DG,

You could put one of these on an existing bike.

I agree. I see the general population as being overly normal.

If you're a male cyclist wearing loose shorts and are forced to stop quick, it's gonna be a painful ride home.

You could always ride in this area. Many riders seem to think the road shoulders are their own private loo.
