Ok, so now that I have pulled the wheel out of retirement and have rode some over the last five days I have a question.


What's the best seat ??

My rear end hurts. I cruised up to the local convenience store for lottery tickets last night. It is about a half mile ride. I was in the store for about five minutes and when I re-mounted for the trip home I didn't want to put my weight on the seat. I need a softer seat. Something to distribute the weight out away from the groin area. Does someone make a seat like that. I even thought about one of those big old saddle seats like on a regular bike, you know, one of those seats that a big old girl or boy could sit on without discomfort, or have the bike disappear to who knows where. heh heh..........

suggestions would be appreciated. Or links. Or pictures.

My guess is that you have the standard seat now? You could get a Kris Holm or a gel seat, oh, and you could try wearing cycling shorts under your pants I'm starting to overuse that smilie, but the cycling shorts actually help, I never have saddle pain anymore (Using a KH saddle)...

Err, hope that helped, a bit?

Mully,

A lot of us in NYC had that radical operation where we got it removed, so it doesn't bother us anymore.

I don't know if they do that in your area.

Was that covered by insurance? If not how could you afford it on a Walmart paycheck?

Bugman!!!

So glad you asked. I have been terminated from WalMart without explanation. everyone suspects it was either Union activities, age discrimination, or uni discrimination. To make a long story short, I got another job, and did so well, I won the Exterminator of the Year Award. I painted that on the side of my truck and put it in my ads, and business took off. I'm now selling franchises to other extertminators who want to use the name, and I offer a quick training to all my franchisees. http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/exte...the_year_3000/

PS After seeing Raphael looking so cute in his new sailor's suit and cap (an idea he may have gotten from MY signature), all our franchisees MUST also wear a sailor's suit and cap.

You see, one problem everyone knows about is that exterminators come to your home in the day, when the man is working and the women is home alone. Well, let's just say that our exterminators were "partying" and not bringing in the $$$$$.

But somehow, the sailor's suit has solved this problem. Maybe it's all those BUTTONS on the fly, or maybe our men just look too cute in those sailor's suits......

And I have to thank Raphael for the idea!

Billy, Everyone knows that a before you can be "In The Navy" you have to be gay. So all the lonely housewives, think your guys are gay. That's why they are able to get so much more work done.
