Notches
 
The hollywood movie versions of American gunfighters of the Old West sometimes put notches in their gun handles to count the men they had killed. :rolleyes:

For me, it's about time to put another notch in my belt. My pants are starting to slip a little! ;)

Moonlight, oh, moonlight!

Why not file a notch in your seatpost for every century, or big mountain pass you ride ?

(Irony Alert!! Notching your seatpost can casue structural failure)

Thanks to all the ideas and encouragement from BF members to get me started commuting, I have noticed the same problem. I told my wife it would be terrible if I had to buy a new belt. :D

I don't think I am ready to start filing notches on any parts of my beloved bikes! However, I too have been putting new holes in my belts! I but on a belt I had not worn in a while, and when I went to the last hole (which previously had never been used!) I found that it was too loose! So I got out my leather punch, and made a new hole, spaced like the others. It was also too loose! So I made another hole, and finally another one before the belt would finally hold my pants up! Kinda nice having a belt that is functional instead of just a clothing accessory!

Listen. I am just plain PO'd!

I had to CUT the end off of my belt, and it STILL WON'T FIT!

:cry:

Perhaps the title of this thread should have been (ahem) "Buenas Notches"?
