I've never worn a set of bibs in my life, but those other tan lines are pretty familiar unless I apply lots of SPF 50. I wonder if by using that over SPF 30, I'm violating Rule #7 from a whole different list .

#16 from this list began as me not wanting to lose saddle time during the winter months. Fast forward a few years, and many of my most memorable and enjoyable rides are those which took place in less than perfect weather.

How you know you spend too much time on a bike - General Bike Discussion

Anybody else thinking this should be valid grounds for curb stomping anyone caught doing it? I mean, really; it's highly unlikely the frame that was attached to those components had much more than scrap value when they were done, and they tacoed the front wheel out of spite.

As for the bottle cabinet, nope; Dollar Tree sells nice 24 ounce bottles that fit in my cages well for a buck, and they come with 24oz of free Gatorade in them to start. I just buy a couple every time I stop there and see my bottles are looking tired.
