So it's an aero problem? Are we talking the legs or everything? It's been a while since my last Brazilian....

So many issues I don't know where to start. Go clipless. Get rid of the rack and loose clothes. Lose the spoke protectors and dork disk. And fill the tires with nitrogen, not helium.

Dork disk? Does this mean the lid, as in helmet?
Dork disk is the plastic ring just underneath the rear cassette. Protects the wheel if your chain should slip off the largest cog in the rear. If your taking care of your bike, in other words, making sure your H/L limits are properly set and your chain and cassette are in good working order (replaced when necessary); you shouldn't need it.

Heh! No, I think you NEED the helmet. Oh, and I meant spoke reflectors, not protectors; that's the function of the dork disk. Other than that, looks good to me...:rolleyes:

I don't know for sure, but I suspect the pic of overweight cyclist was taken at a Special Olympics, because he looks like he might have Downs Syndrome. If so, he has more problems than just his weight.
