That's what Bluetooth headsets are for....

What would be really cool would be to integrate the headset into the bike helmet.

Seems like screen protectors are not easy to find in BB/CC anymore. I remembered when PDA was THE thing and accessories are easy to find. Now, they're relegated to a bottom corner of an mp3 accessories shelf.

BTW, I have no idea whether it's useful or not... but the label said it contains no adhesive, so it doesn't hurt to try.
Best Buy had some for the PSP's not too long ago... Brandy you could get that and cut it down to size.

I got it at Performance, and went with the Kodiak - Light. They also have the Kodiak, and Kodiam Therma Fleece if you want to be "really" warm

My old dial caliper finally crapped out on me so I ordered a cheap digital caliper this morning. I also ordered a bench buffer for polishing parts and components (my wife's jewlry too). I ordered them through Harbor Freight......their tools are dirt cheap, but decent.

I just got home with my new pair of Pearl Izumi Sugar Shorts.

I hate the lighting in dressing rooms. So depressing to strip and have my mother's thighs staring back at me.

Hmmm, i got some PI arm warmers, a small patch kit (seeing how my recent string of flats has mostly depleted my current patch kit), and an Under Armor baselayer shirt all from REI... I suppose i should become an REI member now...

Just picked up a pair of rudy project sunglasses with rx from the optometrist. Now my car-driving friends won't recognize me when I block their lane and slowpoke up the hill.

Got the matte black Kalyos. ImpactX photochromic grey (non-polar) lense and a polar grey lense. Actually, I asked for a polar brown, but they mis-ordered.

The ImpactX lenses should be neat. I'll be curious to see how quickly they transition for you.

Ill be curious as to how you llike them. Im kinda a sunglass **0** and Ive been eying these for a while now. I have a pair of Specialized Chicane's, they are alright I guess, but not worth the $140 purchase price.
