    The buzz saw around the skull will probably hurt more. Or the breadloafing of the organs.
    Either way, no excuse to stop riding. Maybe we'll see OP on the Death Ride stoking a tandem.

    Cytoman is in, still recovering from the Davis Double. Look for me and my brother Ed on Specialized Roubaix Elites, tennis ball containers on the back rather than seat bags.
