is there something i missed about riding a bike, where you have to have a beard? i've seen the pics on sheldonbrown.com of him and all his goofy facial hair, as well as most of the employees at bike shops...not to mention my cousin, who i think has a fixie (not sure, never seen his bike).


btw, thanks sheldon for putting together such a great website! RIP!

I was just thinking today that my beard was getting to be too much for this weather. I haven't trimmed it since I shaved it all off and let it grow back in January. I've been keeping it touched up on my neck and cheeks, but that's it.

It's now in the 90's and it's like wearing a wool blanket on my face. But it's super righteous and I'm not sure if I can stand to shave it. Maybe a trim is in order, but not till after Coop's.

Mines seasonal. Love in the winters. Hate it in the summers. It hides my svelt cheeks.

I thought this thread was about facial hair.

I'd say, in the last 30 years I have saved enough money on razorblades to buy a new bike!

get rid of your car and see how much you save (or can use to pay off CC debt, whatever) :D

well bud......I have no credit card debt, or any debt for that matter, and my truck is in the shop. Fact is I probably only drive 3 or 4 times a week, a 350 mile fillup lasts me 2 1/2 weeks.
I tried to start driving less 4 or 5 years ago, and it worked. Here in WI, commuting 36 miles round trip twice a week is really not an option 6 months of the year or I would drive even less.
