    Interesting article in the NYTs about knock-offs making their way down to lower rung goods. Bike goods are not discussed but I never buy bike stuff on ebay for the fear they are knock-offs, and that ebay seatpost might suddenly turn into an avenging impaler on my favorite trails at RW...

    narrow, firm saddles

    Took my first ride yesterday with a firm saddle and it was excruciating. Is this ability to ride firm saddles innate like gender or can I train my derriere to find solace in firmness?
