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.

No more pit stops!

You know how it is,  keep yourself hydrated to maintain the condition needed to excel on long charity rides.  You have to stop every 15 miles, even when you don't need to, just to unload  a few cups of the water you gulp down and then be temped by all the chocolate chip cookies they offer.
Now you can get a step up on all the spandex hamsters.  While they discuss their powermeter settings and munch on granola and watermelon, you can have fun riding to infinity and beyond.

A long time ago, I postulated the theory that saddles had been developed to sell diapers.  No more peeing in your  Rapha's now!  The Infinity Saddle was developed to let you hang it all out.  It only takes a little practice to aim through the convenient cutout and waft a gentle warming spray to the breeze, 
into your competitor's goggles.
Seriously, a chiropractor developed this, and reading his Kickstarter page , it sounds good in theory.  I'm a little skeptical.  He claims one size fits all, that it is designed to fit around the skeletal structure using only the flesh and muscle to support you.  He claims there is no stress or involvement in any skeletal structure, or those annoying nerve endings in that area.  It's a pretty convincing argument, he has more than quadrupled his funding goal in half the time scheduled!  It will be interesting to see how it's accepted. 
 I've had trouble accepting this,

but with them on sale for the holidays, I am tempted.
