    Do you know how many degrees of offset your seatpost has? Most common is 20 degrees. I can't remember if that translates to 4 or five cm's, but I know I measured it once. I guess I'd need a very...

    I had a Giro Atmos I loved for ventilation, but it was too round for my head-shape. The Ionos fit well, but it's discontinued. Do you know anything about the relative shapes of the new models? Rudy...

    The higher end Giros ventilate very well, even here on the SE Coast US. (Let me tell you about humidity...ugh).

    I'm 5'7" and can ride either, depending on geometry. My one limiting factor is femur length. I have long legs, but short femurs. This means I use a seatpost without any offset. And a bike that is too...

    The higher end Giros are very cool. I had an Atmos, could hardly tell it was there, and I live on the SE Coast. But, it was too round, I have an oblong head, too. I borrowed a Giro from a friend of...

    Could you take them to a seamstress and have them resewn? If you show them the old shorts and the new, they may be able to fix it. (Okay, weird image. :p).

    Actually, the Pika from Revelate is smaller, but still large, might be better. The Viscacha is probably overkill for what you describe. :)

    Can't say about the breast-pumping as I've never had children, but carrying it in a backpack sounds like a problem. If you can't attach a rack directly to your bike (especially if it is carbon), you...

    Not sure why I end up with so many of these since I'm not a teacher, but this is too comic not to share.
