Very true. They're certainly two different kettles of fish, but the lack of institutional will regarding motos is beginning to irk me. We had another near-catastrophe with a moto at Paris Roubaix.

Where are you? I have a Specialized Hardrock 29er with a custom back wheel that I bought and rode back when I was over 400. It's a great bike with a locking front suspension and I'd love to sell it...

When I didn't have a hex key that fit my seat post clamp, I didn't go buy one. I took the next size up, grabbed a hammer, and pounded the key into the bolt until it had cut a larger hole. It worked...

This is a terrifying image.

And if you can mallet a 'dillo while moving without taking an asphalt nap, then you, sir, are the height of balance. Well done. But I want to see video proof.

Indeed. May you be a shining beacon to others. The lack of armadillo vigilance on our roads is a travesty.

Sugar free energy gels?

Anyone know of any sugar free energy gels out there? Or is that just a contradiction in terms? I did a bit of Googling but didn't come across anything.
