    Not ready to embrace Monday. Well, here's a great little video distraction from our friends at Blackburn. Comes With Baggage is a lighthearted history of bicycle travel in the Americas that just might make you want to sell your possessions, quit your job, and escape on a bike. Past and current...

    We kind of like this Blackburn Central 20 Rear tail light for $35. First of all, it's incredibly bright as it measured 31 Lumens in an integrating sphere.
