I want this helment:

It's about time to replace mine, methinks, but I'm having a hard time justifying spending $130 on one... even if it is really nice.

Your head is worth at least $130!

My motorcycle helmet was $200 and makes me look like a mushroom head; sexy it isn't, but it had the best safety rating without spending a lot more.

Oh, I know, but there are plenty of just-as-safe helmets out there for far less. The extra expense is for aesthetics and slightly less weight, not any extra safety.

Same with motorcycle helmets. I wish I could afford a carbon helmet, but they seem to run $500 or so. I guess I put my money into the bike and not as much me looking good while riding it.

Bicycle helmets are all equally as safe, unlike motorcycle helmets. The cost is due to increased ventilation, fit, and lower weight.

Yeah, but they're like six thousand kangaroo pelts or some sh!t. Exchange rate is still awesome, so I'll grab one when I'm over in Americaland next month.

Speaking of, you still in Fogtown or thereabouts?

Ha ha. I keep forgetting about that. I'm not sure which fact is more impressive: That you're still together, or that he's still alive.

SUNBURN!

You're going to pass this on to Bike Santa for me, right?

People keep telling me my cable lock is going to get cut off, so I would really like to get a nice U-lock to replace it.

And I want either a seat or a trailer for my kid. A trailer makes a lot more sense to me (especially since we'll have a second kid next year, and will want to haul that one around too) but my spouse (oops, my partner) is really against them for some reason.

i've been lusting after these hydraulic disc brakes for a while, so last week i picked up a pair of them. they're a used set, but in mint condition, and cost rather a lot of money (£245!) but i'm VERY pleased with them...

I was just looking at Linus bikes today! Especially the Dutchie 8:

Or the Public C7: (they have mixtes too though!)

I wish things would stop happening that required money from me so I could buy a bike already.
