    Bingo!

    As for helmets, its true they will not sve you from a spleen busting collision with a car, but I wear one. My most serious accident was about 1980, when I had gotten on the bike to run to...

    The irony in what I was saying is in that Clemens (Twain) was not a bigot himself, and was in fact a pretty staunch abolitionist. They that are prone to ban books often do so based on perceptions of...

    Not "theft proof" really, just another kind of lock. This one is unique in that is is incorporated into the frame of the bike itself. Might deter thieves based on the less than solid frame.
