    I second (or third) the wool socks. From what I know, wool socks are the only material that can keep you warm even if they are wet.

    There's a group in St. Louis that also does some of this crazy stuff (actually, I think more than one). I like the rock band one. That's hilarious.

    So I had my first wreck ever on a bike today and thought I'd share. I was riding to an alderman meeting, and going at least 20 mph down a busy city street when all of a sudden a kid throws a ball out...

    I think I misrepresented my soreness (or rather didn't explain it!). I get sore on the level of can't walk for a day or three. Which probably sets me back more since it puts me out of commission. I...

    Who knows anything about this bike?

    Earlier this month I picked up a bike off of craigslist. It was a Takara Medalist and the guy claimed he bought it brand new in the later 90s. I didn't believe him, of course, but it was a nice bike...
