This is a shameless attempt to save the the most advanced civilization in
history from imminent self destruction by eliminating carbon emission,
dependence on foreign sources of fuel,obesity, hypertension and diabetes.
Cycling accomplishes all those things at once and helps us develop a better
understanding of ourselves, each other and our relationship to the cosmos.

Oh, horse puckey!
I like to ride bikes, have been doing it all my life.
The rest of that crap is just a fringe benefit,
and the blogosphere gives me a chance to share my interior
monologue with virtual rather than imaginary friends.

I'm back on that "saddle conspiracy" soapbox again

I think there are some real opportunities to improve the bike saddle.  Although my admitted favorite in the area of  butt torture is plain leather , Brooks preferably.   I was recently forwarded a video which reminded me of a friend who had quite a time "fine tuning" the saddle adjustment for the co-eds at Vanderbilt where he went to school.  This girl seems to have gotten it right, right out of the box.


It leads me to wonder about some past and discarded designs.
My girl friend at the time this beauty hit the shelves,
 wanted to know
if it took rechargeable AAA"s.
There is a real marketing opportunity here, and a chance for us guys
to convince our new friends to join our obsession.
