    Do NOT drink and...

    Do not drink and take selfies when trying on helmets. It goes from bad to worse. Just sayin...


    I think maybe I'll lube the chain on my bike.

    Huh? This thread is worthless without pictures.
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    Don't eat 'shrooms and do selfies while trying on helmets, either. You might wind up with your feet wearing a pair of helmets and your head with an SPD road shoe on it.

    ...so... you getting your pain med's hidden in 'shrooms so you take them? It's what my wife does for our pet .... LOL Glad to see you on the forum, and as you put it in another thread, "your turn in the bucket."

    If it was fixed gear, it might explain the lack of any typed replies...
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    I needed a new helmet last year and EVERY single helmet I tried on looked like a giant mushroom on my head. So I actually grabbed a nearby cycling magazine to compare how mushroom-like other riders looked. I finally gave up and found the most comfortable helmet, looks be damned! I don't have to look at myself while I'm riding, so no worries!

    'bout as good as trying to take selfies. Good thing I was wearing a helmet, but a visor would have been nice.
