    A bunch of sweet Sogreni stuff came into the store lately. My fave:

    Sogreni Chain guard/cover





    Test fitted on Shinbot's Fixie. Love it! (But maybe not for everyone)

    b-but, you're not being safe! you're not thinking of the children! for god's sake will someone think of the children! i hope those kids were wearing helmets when they were tobogganing out of respect for safety.

    that has been my life's motto thus far. screw my pants indeed.

    I can only speculate from indoor testing, but it seems to work ok. Probably not as effective as something that covers the top AND side though (but most of them are hideous)

    Their stuff is very industrial. In the right application it's gorgeous. In the wrong, it can look like you made it at home.

    You should see their stuff. They make bells, leather grips, racks, fenders, lights, and we have it all, whahahahah.

    Tre expensive though

    edit: they also make some complete bikes, even an MTB which looks like a paint stripped bike from '92.

    Ooo, but their trouser clip just gave me an idea. I have some elastic cord and if I just add a frog, then instant pant clip.

    I hate to be the one to say it, but I miss summer riding (already). I do love winter, really, but it's just ****ing with my riding

    I'm just gettin' into my winter groove, I think.
    More toboggan hills to ride?
    Perchance some snowy back alley, or park one evening, the spit?

    My nine year old is now surfing the corplast sled to the bottom using heel and toe side balancing with knees bent wide stance. I think I have a natural on my hands.

    No hills for this guy YET we were just out to the bus, he loves getting on it so doesn’t his big brother. I have heard the talk about helmets for kids on sleds, kind of crazy.

    I got a pair of insulated pants which I wear on really cold days. Polypro and shants don't keep my knees warm enough. I'm using an old velcro watchband as a trouser clip at the moment.

    I use a cat collar sometimes. Works and no fleas.

    I'm off work this week, and could be convinced to go for a ride.
