    Man, "all your base" STILL cracks me up. I'm such a dork. Riding in the rain is fun, but I'm getting a wee bit tired of it.

    i hate rain riding. unless you wear glasses its impossible to keep looking directly ahead with out looking like the incredible hulk squeezing out an incredible turd. where is that puma "concept" cycling coat when you need it?


    besides crap on my bike is starting to rust and oxidize.

    No way dude. Rain riding with glasses sucks MAJOR booty. Imagine driving a car in the rain with no wipers, now imagine you dont have a steel box protectiong your body. THAT, my friend, sucks.

    im not positive, but i feel like i've read somewhere rain-x on your glasses can mess with the anti-glare/scratch coating on the lenses. i would research it some more.
