I only spent 40 bucks on a helmet. I figure a helmet is a helmet.

it's not


What's your bougie take on the helmet situation then?

you should at least get one with MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System). they tend to start in the $60 range.

If you're goal is to not crash at all costs, are you really trying? And on road, not crashing isn't entirely up to you.

I am having a real pain in the ass getting my mud guard to keep from rubbing against my tire in back. It’s a generic Bell mud guard and doesn’t fit quite right. I have a few zip ties holding it in place. It’s pretty hack.

it's old. I don't even know what it is. But the ones that come with bikes are always terrible. find something more plush.

everyone says I sound like I'm from Brooklyn but I think I just sound like a hick from rural Canada. I think only east coast Canadians actually have a unique accent.

That paint job is gorgeous and the frame is the right size for me. Let's see if I'm able to find my first ever road bike this summer.

my 12 year old was a on a ride yesterday with his 2 friends and called saying his wheel is "falling off." turns out he had a flat. i think he was riding on deflated tires. anyway, i had to go get a bike tube for 24 inch wheels. they were sold out everywhere. i finally found them (the last 2) in an REI about 30 miles away (i needed them today because we rely on him riding his bike everywhere instead of carting him around while we're trying to work, and he needed to be somewhere today at 3:00). that the hell?
