Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Many laws cover what a lot of people would assume to be common sense; common sense isn't quite common enough. Oh, and not that I'm a fan of bells (I don't have one), but yelling is NOT as effective.
Very well said

Close, but seriously. I once had a guy in Slovenia hand make me a CF saddle cradle for my seatpost on my Cervelo to save 16g. Adding a light, and a bell, because some suit dummy wants to waste tax money to enforce an idiotic law that serves no purpose is beyond me that's all I am saying, but again more bikes please. I only have a limited amount of pics of my bikes to contribute.

Stop the political talk and personal attacks. If it continues I will move this to P and R or simply close it.

WhyFi and Solo do not reply to each other please.

Hot....However, I think it would look better with a black saddle or with white tape to go with the white saddle.
