Your forgot to pimp Strangercrombie's "Cyclista".

Are you telling your angry, fat readers to get on a bike? DAAAAAAN!

I read the "More Extras" responding to HARD, and was pretty surprised by the two letters accusing you of being "another" misogynistic gay man. I thought the point of that last column was to say that every woman is an individual, so play your cards according to what you know about her, not someone else's generic advice. Meh. At least I know I never want to be an advice columnist and deal with that kind of shit.

Anyway, as an actual stocking stuffer for the cyclist in your life, I thought these winged bike clips (a la Mercury) were nerdily clever:

Personally, I like the solar-powered halogen bike lights. Nothing says Share The Road like ultra-powered high beams ...

And us straight guys don't mind the bush as much as Dan does.

Hey, I don't have a problem with bush -- I'm quoting Bike Snob NYC here.

There is a good link on the boingboing site to an orgnization in Vancouver helping the victims of war in the Congo. It doesn't need to be a gift, it's amazing how much $5 will help.

If you are wearing neon spandex that's light enough to show bush, you deserve to die. Likewise if you are wearing any advertising messages on your shirt that you are not getting paid for.

Remember when "bike shorts" were fashion? They weren't really bike shorts, because they didn't have the (diaper-looking) chamois liner, but they did look hysterical on the fatsos who fell for them. Visible bush was only the fourth or fifth most objectionable feature.

Oh, give it a rest. So long as it's not hanging outside the clothes ...

@6: I've noticed a lot of prejudice in this town against those of us who wear Spandex. I just want to say, fuck you. We don't wear it to fit into your limited vision of what's fashionable.

I used to have a 1,000,000 candle hand spotlight back when I was delivering pizzas, and holding your hand in front of it would make it noticeably warm. I can only imagine the retarded brightness of a 3,000,000 candle spot.

I would like to point out that the Symphony in Motion mobile that you linked to is incredible. Both of my sons have loved it. Every baby should have one. When one of ours wore out from over use it was critical that we replace it that very day.

If you have a baby and you want as many as 15 minutes to yourself, buy one this very instant.

That is all.
