    I thought about getting one as my LBS sells them (naturally, they're just down the street from the stadium), but to be painfully honest it really is not a particularly attractive jersey.

    It will be interesting to see if the current MIPS are substantially better, or if perhaps they're the first step on a longer path. For obvious reasons, the NFL is funding a lot of concussion...

    Even at the time it surprised me a bit and in retrospect I have no idea. At one shop that had a few vintage bikes I might have been interested in, the guy seemed almost offended that I was looking...

    With friends, I'd follow their lead. If they wanted to stop at a cafe, I'd like get a burger or some sort of beef. But left to my own devices, I'll eat a Clif bar or two from a convenience store. ...

    I returned to riding a few years back after an absence of 30 some years. My first thought was to get road bike, but every shop I talked to told me I should buy a hybrid. As an older guy, they said...
