If you really need to keep your butt warm, nothing works better than eating Mexican food the night before.

So far it's not breaking in very well. But it cooks up a mean stack of flap jacks.

Iron your bike shorts while-U-ride. Not to mention some other equipment.

As in keeping "the boys" from hibernating on those cold rides....but how you going to stay seated under hard braking? I mean that thing is probably slicker than whale dung. One panic stop and your going to crash your sac right thru the steerer tube/stem. Ouch!

All that's needed is a button on the handlebars for a blast of steam!
