two wheels like this? seems a bit drastic guys and if he tips over, it is gonna cost alot of money.


Personally, I think you should just go for a bike ride.

Clean out your closet and give away things you no longer use to the homeless or needy.

Was it homemade? If so, what were the ingredients/recipe?

I'm with Siu. Here's a better idea...clean out your closet, give what you no longer use to the homeless or needy THEN go on a bike ride to celebrate the good deed that you just did.

not really homemade. frozen limeade, tequilla, lime juice a bit of water, salt the rim... nothing fancy. i'm sure there are better ones out there.

I do use a mixer (out of laziness), but a proper margarita must have some orange liqueur in it. I use Grand Marnier.

Take your MTB out in a field, close your eyes, and start riding. Count how many pedal strokes you're able to make until you fall, or chicken out and open your eyes.

Ride your bike to MY house, clean it, I'll feed you, lend you Salsa's bike light, toss you $40, and then ride home.
