    Hang in there, CK!

    Send someone to Toys-R-Us for one of these. (It's BMX, but it is a bike.)

    Print the Helmet Thread and read it out loud. It's filled with angst and drama. That should keep your audience riveted. :)

    I love my Brooks B-17 Imperial. The Imperial line of Brooks Saddles have a cut out that causes the sides to flare out, causing the part under your junk to dip down to relieve pressure there.

    For at least a few years, I've pointed out that arguing against MHLs in this thread is pointless. It's a short cut to "winning the internet," since we helmeteers also disagree with MHLs. Thus, the...

    Yes. And like wipekitty says, a change of clothes for the office makes a big difference. I hang my cycling gear from hooks under my desk to air out and dry before putting it on for the ride home.
