Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

FYI guys: the clothing department of National Wholesale Liquidators (Broadway near Houston, big yellow sign) sells 100% silk long underwear for $20 per piece. I get this stuff from a factory store in wisconsin, but these prices are almost as good. It's incredibly useful for winter riding. I have been able to work all day in 20 degree weather with just silk, t-shirt and wool overshirt. Highly recommended.

shaving the nads helps, but certainly not the first time! it takes a few weeks for your skin to adjust.

I went there last nite too, and having misread your post, I thought it was $20 for the whole set. I was cursing you until realizing I probably read it wrong, and I did. No matter, I got two full sets of the nicest cotton/poly blend ones for $6 each, thanks to the indifferent clerk's error.

If you can wait a few days for shipping you can get some good winter stuff on Sierra Trading Post's site (and scout around for coupon codes, too). I think they had silk underlayers ranging from $11-$15.
