Very sharp and stealthy....would be even more so if you ditch the saddlebag ;)
Holy jeez! How tall are you??
Can't go wrong with yellow and black ;-)
It is very distinctive and stands out in a sea of black or white bikes...I get lots of comments wherever I go.
Yellow and black is so...badass.
I have this headlight--different brand but same principle: Rubber strap for quick on/off. That way I only have my lights on the bike when they're actually needed, as opposed to a semi-permanent...
Judging by the handlebar setup, the guy's been watching too many reruns of "Easy Rider."
Here's what I use...flexible soft rubber straps that conform to any seat post:
Better a fractured helmet than a fractured skull (yup, this was what my helmet looked like after I crashed in September, 2012).
In addition to head a head and tail light, I have reflective ankle bands. It's a backup should the battery on my taillight die, plus reflectors in motion really capture attention from a 360 degree...
Rode this morning for the first time in two weeks--good, brisk 25-mile ride before work. Based on another hint I found online, I used a small amount of Preparation H on the affected area before...
Haven't try item #2 ...I'll give it a go! Thanks.
Of course! I also have a centrifugal clothing spinner that gets most of the water out, so they air-dry pretty quickly.
Your memory is good!
One big problem is that I live in an apartment complex with only a single washer. I think I will try putting my bibs in a basin with a little laundry soap, and then using HOT...
Saw my dermatologist today for unrelated stuff and I had him take a look. He confirmed that they are healing up nicely, as I knew because I've been looking at the little buggers in the mirror. He...
LOL...I made the appointment a while ago for an unrelated issue--to take care of precancerous sun damage. Another occupational hazard of this sport that we love.
That might be the one area I've missed. After I ride, I wash my shorts/bibs in the shower with me, using hot water and soap, because I live in an apartment building with only one washer. I then put...
At this point I've tried all the obvious solutions (bike fit, new clothing, new saddles) so I'm leaning towards a medical issue. I have the appointment with my dermatologist on April 1, so I'll see...
Depression seems to be working pretty well.
What's going on with you?
I rode on New Year's Day, and it was 42F at 8:00 am. Doing 18 MPH with that air temp, it was cold for a SoCal boy!
Even more depressing is that the weather is turning really nice and I can't ride. :(
I call them saddle "sores" but they're more like the cysts you describe.
I'm going to see what my dermatologist says, but since I've tried different clothing and saddle combinations, and the issue will go away and then flare up again I'm leaning towards a medical rather...
