Oooo, ouch! You may think about a suspension seat post to take out some of the harshness.

Id rather keep a ferret down my shorts*.


*Most people have heard tales of ferrets wherein they often are described either as a vicious weasel-like beast used for hunting rabbits and rats, or as some strange, smelly creature Englishmen tend to place down their trousers for wagers.

I like the idea. If you could get a seat with heating filaments sewn in. you'd have a way to keep Willy and the Poorboys happy.
You'd need a pretty big battery to pull it off; but if you're crazy enough to go biking in freezing weather, what's a few extra pounds?

Though my handlebar is too full of junk already. I will need a Minoura Space Saver to fit in the steam button.

Hahahaha.

My best laugh of the day.

You know, they make irons with a groove down the center so it's easier to iron over the buttons.

Such an iron would relieve the pressure on your...well, you know...

Cook on it during stops! A couple slices of bread and a slice of Velveeta, and you've got yourself a grilled cheese sandwich...that tastes like arse. You'd need to pack a spatula anyways (downtube?).

Someone should build on this invention and take two hot irons and attach them to your cranks to be used as pedals! When I ride in the winter my feet/toes are what gets the coldest first and foremost?
