Trimming some fat

OK, so I’m at the point that it is easier to trim some fat from a bike than actually give up beer and lose some weight. I’ve assigned the DiamondBack Transporter the job of being my “long commute” bike. Since rain is nowhere near the radar, I’ve removed the fenders,

And here’s the final look:

I still think that the bike looks classy, but the best part is, the bike now weighs 25.5 lbs! I’ve lost 3lbs in less than 10 minutes!

Now in its 4th year, it is easy to join since it takes place in 20 countries and 70 cities. If you are creative you can decorate your bike, or your body. You can also ride a skateboard, roller blades or a unicycle. Too shy? Go “bare as you dare”. And the answer to that question you’re dying to ask (what does it feel like to ride nude?), the answer is: “Just like it does with clothes but a bit cooler. Most riders also find it exhilarating, liberating, empowering… and downright hilarious. :: World Naked Bike Ride
