    29er helmet

    Is there such a thing?

    I did my 17 miles this morning. -9 degrees with a windchill of -17.
    I was all toasty warm with my new mittens and face mask.
    When I was done, I had a hard time taking off my helmet. The buckle had frozen over with my perspiration.

    Should I put deodorant on my buckle before rides like this? Should I look to see if there's a real 29er helmet out there with 29 specific fingerless gloves?

    I want to move to Texas, but then I'd have to change my name to "ernesto from Texas." That just wouldn't sound right.

    I'm spunky. I like my oatmeal lumpy.
    I'm sick wit dis, straight gangsta mack
    but sometimes I get ridiculous
    I'll eat up all your crackers and your licorice
    hey yo fat girl, c'mere--are ya ticklish?
    Yeah, I called ya fat.
    Look at me, I'm skinny

    shhhhhh
    Also, fleece socks, goretex socks, neoprene booties over my Sidis.
    Hands? same secret, but with Gore-Tex lined hotfingers gloves

    Other than that, fleece and neoprene over my head and face. Ski goggles, a ski helmet, goretex shell and pants, and a smile.

    The Humpty Dance is your chance to the Hump... *bump bump bump*


    ernesto - I usually use my snowboarding helmet in the super freezing weather... Keeps my ears warmer and the buckle area has fleece around it so I never have that frozen shut thing.

    Mine's one of those, but older. It does have fleece around the strap. maybe I'll move the fleece over the buckle.

    Someone needs to make a wheel-powered heater for bikes. You could mount it like those red radio/horn things they had in the 70's. Anyone? Minus anything is just madness to me. Then again, I grew up in Louisiana where anything below 85 F is "cool".

    People say "Yo, Humpty, you're really funny lookin'"
    that's all right 'cause I get things cookin'
    Ya stare, ya glare, ya constantly try to compare me
    but ya can't get near me
    I give 'em more, see, and on the floor, B,
    all the girls they adore me
    Oh yes, ladies, I'm really bein' sincere
    'cause in a 69 my humpty nose will tickle ya rear.
    My nose is big, uh-uh I'm not ashamed
    Big like a pickle, I'm still gettin' paid
    I get laid by the ladies, ya know I'm in charge,
    both how I'm livin' and my nose is large
    I get stoopid, I shoot an arrow like Cupid,
    I use a word that don't mean nothin', like looptid
    I sang on Doowhutchalike, and if ya missed it,
    I'm the one who said just grab 'em in the biscuits
    Also told ya that I like to bite
    Well, yeah, I guess it's obvious, I also like to write.
    All ya had to do was give Humpty a chance
    and now I'm gonna do my dance.

    I see David Copperfield is starting to affect the regulars

    Best vapor barrier liner? Bread bags. Cheap, to free, and you get neat little crumbs in your socks and in between your toes, which encourages the dogs to lick 'em, causing frigid digits, to become less so.

    I like that one, frigid digits, frigid digits, got a nice bounce off the tongue....
