    I would include corporations and foundations who would benefit from helmet sales in the Helmeteer group as many cyclists and non-cyclists are. There is no doubt that there are many sources that have...

    Of course, but Aaron's is not only suggesting a servicing before the hub is used, Aaron's is suggesting a servicing every 6 months, even when those 6 months see little rain.

    when I drove cab, I got into the habit of "bobbing" my head around while looking about.
