    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    I still think they're a great deal, at $13, and if you're in quick need of some cheap bullhorns, you can't go wrong.

    But they're coming off, and the RB-021's are going back on, right meow.
    Stay in the RB-021 /b/rotherhood.

    It's not that I didn't like it. I just didn't like it BETTER than the RB-021.

    First, I didn't feel much of an improvement in ergonomics (I know this part is subjective, since I personally don't ride the tops too often and I like the drop in the RB-021). Also, the Aerobar felt more flexible, which I'm not a fan of. I feel more confident when I apply weight on the 021, especially when I get up off the saddle to pedal or skip stop or whatever. Felt a bit more conservative on the "bendier" Aerobar. I mean, this is not a HUGE difference I'm talking about. It's just a slightly noticeable thing, and it's probably also sort of subjective. But it did influence my decision to go back to the RB-021.

    I'm not saying everyone should choose an RB-021 over the Aerobar. I already had the RB-021, so I was able to compare and decide that I still prefer it. For those looking for a decent bullhorn without spending too much, I'd still say the Aerobar is a good buy... especially at $13.

    It's kind of funny how you sold your Rb-021 to someone else and bought it back from the same person and absolutely enjoying the crap out of it now. Cool story, brah.

    Would that fork be a upgrade to this Motobecane Custom Drawn and Tapered Steel, Unicrown Road, 1.125 threadless? Would it fit? Thanks

    If you want to barspin then it would kind of be an upgrade; if not, then it's useless to you as the fork uses a smaller sized wheel.

    Alright thank you! I know this is the wrong thread, but could you recomend me a crankset? the one that comes on this bike is pretty ****ty, it comes loose after every ride, it's also plastic... I think I'm just gonna upgrade the crankset/peddles (also plastic) and eventually the wheel set and saddle. I just dont know what to get/good buy.

    Maybe you should get her something nice then put it in a nicely decorated box.

    Or buy her that box of crap.

    She wants a kitten...very tempting, but I am not sure quite yet... not a huge fan of not breathing, but it would be nice to have a kitty to play with Ramona

    Anyone know any good deals on cycling gloves that are low key, comfortable, somewhat thin, will keep my hands warm in cold conditions, and cheap?

    Let me rephrase: Can someone tell me where to find the ultimate gloves?

    I have these in red & they are awesome! Like little wool sweaters for your hands! These have been good for me down to mid 30's in the PNW, but I tend to run a little warm... To me, this is the ultimate glove for the excellent warmth (even when wet) and breathability.
