I know, and I'll keep racing that way. Jersey under bibs would suck anyway. I'm talking (horror of horrors) cotton t-shirts here.

I'm a sick, sick man.

If you'd like a little style advice, then just be sure to put bandaids on your nipples and proudly flaunt them in the sheerest jerseys you can find!

Chicks dig it!

Pretty good deals to be found here if you're in SF, I believe they have a store in Walnut Creek now too:

So I sweat like the fat bastid I am so sweat in my eyes is a huge problem for me - as in, it annoys the shit out of me and I have to stop all the time to wipe the sweat. It really really cuts down on the great enjoyment I get out cycling.

I saw these on the site Gummee listed earlier




Anybody used these or anything like them ?

Any other suggestions ?

Cheers

I tried a pair on the M/C and found that my big nose prevented a seal and the foam area that did touch my face made my head sweat too much.

YMMV

That makes sense to me - I figured they wouldn't really help too much.

I used to work there - great store - great owners- they really take care of their employees. They now have an online store if you are not in the bay area.

Everyone I've ever dealt with there was friendly and helpful.

I hate you guys

Well, this thread and my increasing gut have inspired me to dust off my 1994 Cannondale m600. That bike took me to some crazy places, including several 12 miles of Hell races at Ft. Sill, and some nice points standings in the Missouri Norba Jr Sport and Expert classes. Even ran a few races down in Arkansas and Kansas...

I stopped riding, because of all things, depression. I was a mildly successful offroading until my girlfriend dumped me. Lame I know, but it killed the urge to spin off my daily 20 in teh morning and 20 in the evening because my mind would wander too much...

Fast forward to today, I about died riding 5 miles on road with my bike. My ACL reconstructed knee is seeming to cope well with the low impact spinning. I was mildly impressed that although my lungs and legs both gave out on me, my form was still good and the bike still fits well. I did move my seat forward a mm but it still hurts my ass....I think that's got to do with the weight I've put on since my knee injury two years ago.

So, collective huge ass bicycle thread on ADV, does anyone have an old square tapered crankset they'd be willing to part with? I was dropping the chain every time I stood on the pedals. Talk about forcing a guy to spin...

I took off my Ritchie pedals since I don't have shoes for the cleats. But I found a pair of those crappy nylon pedals from a huffy to put on there for free. It works and I don't go click, click click when I roll in to work in the mornings.

Oh, I'm commuting to work by bicycle now. DOn't get too excited, it's only three blocks away. However, after work, it's only 3 blocks and I'm on Snowball riding miles and miles of singletrack, fireroads and chat piles. Great fun I must say...

Now, if my damn chain would quit popping off everytime i torqued down.

My dad has the same problem only thing that works for him is a sweat band made out of sponge wrings it out 10x a day or more when we are working. Pretty gross, but my pits sweat more...



perhaps this is a bit more stylish...or these

Not exactly. After riding 2000 miles in el-cheap Insport, I ordered a couple of pairs of Louis Garneau...and they are Made in the USA!

Huge difference in fit, performance, quality, etc. I got the LG on sale at Nashbar for about 40 bucks. Worth every penny.

I have the same problem. The easiest solution was to wear a headband low on the forehead, but to be honest, I really don't like it.

Today I bought a Fox helmet from REI specifically because it appears to have a really good velcro'd in forehead band.

I went on a 20 mile mostly tarmac ride on the mtb using the new helmet this afternoon and sweat stayed out of my eyes. Tomorrow will be the real test.
