Here’s another product that I endorse: Rocket Shower by 10 nine 8. I use this product right after wiping down the sweat. It makes me feel fresh and it does not dry up my skin. I have the 8.5oz bottle and it has lasted me over 6 months. 10 Nine 8 has a money back guarantee, so what do you have to lose?
Bike Your Drive!
After watching that video that RL posted on how easily it is to steal a bike on NYC, I found this video from www.streetfilms.org on how to and how NOT to lock your bike:

Locksit is a design-against-crime influenced saddle that immobilises the bicycle and avoids the need to carry your saddle around with you. Cyclists now only need to take one lock with them (to secure the frame and front wheel) making cycling and parking easier, quicker and more convenient.
This came out about a year ago…its pretty interesting people’s reactions to this guy.
A few weeks ago I went from bullhorns to a flat bar in order to create “Nacho.” So this week I decided to step it up a bit. Moe gave me some old mountain bike riser bars. At first I cut them down and painted it white. But I must have used some cheapo paint because I got my grimmy hands on the white and the grease wouldn’t come off. So the next thing I did was just sand off the bars down to the bare aluminum. I tried to get it polished the best I could with the equipment I have. I then cut the bars another inch shorter on each end.
I also installed these ergonomic grips provided to us by Hermans
Here’s a close up on the “brushed aluminum” bars.
I decided to reinstall my brakes since there are plenty of big hills in my area. But this time I went with an XTR lever. However, I only had the right hand lever, so not wanting to confuse my brain and motor skills, I went ahead and flipped the levers and placed them on the left side. I know…I know there some guys that ride with their front brakes on the right side like a motorcycle. But that’s not how I roll.
