I just got my latest Momentum.

I'm kinda disappointed by their photographs. No one is ever wearing a helmet!

Nice rag but... come on!

I thought the same thing. I was going to give my copy to my son, who is a new commuter, but I didn't want to send a bad message. Especially since he called to discuss why so many commuters run red lights...

Sounds like an awful lot of work to do for 'a modest per-issue honorarium'. :cool:
