    When it comes down to money vs. time I , personally, always always choose time.

    Time=health/fitness/emotional well-being/creativity. Money=more stuff. I've learned to live with less "stuff".

    I'm always cold...I love knickers. I have knee warmers and I'll wear those when I think it's really going to warm up. I find that I can comfortably ride in knickers from hi 30s to low 70s (F).
