    Buying a bicycle has been on my mind for a while, but I probably won't buy one for quite a while.

    Are there any leisurely cyclists on the board?

    I kinda want to buy one'a them longtail bikes. A real urban workhorse.

    Been looking at these things:

    http://www.trekbikes.com/ca/en/bikes/town/utility/transport/transport/#
    http://www.xtracycle.com/

    But I dunno. My bike "needs" may be different from your bike needs. Plus I dread having to wear a helmet (despite it not being a requirement). If only bicycle helmets came in something resembling stahlhelms the way motorcycle helmets can/do.

    As you all can see, one can get sucked into the whole bicycle lifestyle and go crazy with the modding and so forth.

    Oh wow, those are some gorgeous ones. I've never seen bikes like those before.

    My bike is your regular looking one, so nothing fancy to talk about there. I don't wear a helmet myself, although I really should. At least I think it's possible to buy some good looking helmets over here.

    Ach. It looks like Craze isn't available outside of Europe.

    I guess I'll shop around for a helmet of that look. Something about those egg-shaped, cyclist-y, air-hole-ridden with visor helmets just make me think of the Tour de France and gangly men in aerodynamic spandex jumpsuits.

    Well if you come up empty handed on a helmet, maybe I can help getting you one of those craze ones.

Howdy, Stranger!
