    Zen - do you wear this on your bare calf? Just wondering if it irritates any - I noted that it is sold as a pants-leg strap.

    I think it is sweet, and shows your Mom's good taste that she gave into Scars obvious charm

    I wear mine on the upper arm.
    At this time of year everything is bare skin.

    It's also sold as a dog collar

    Thanks - and I like the price. I've actually seen a few around here in longer pants in this heat so was trying not to assume.

    I think she just looked hot in her underarmor compression tights I found her cycling home in the other day. How could he resist?

    He did run off with one of my jett saddles, a helmet, gloves, and one of my tool bag pannier bags that DebW sent me hooks to make. So I'll have to find some more hooks to make replacement bag and watch out for another saddle.

    In good soap opera plots, when the daughter is dumped for the mom - it's usually because Mom's pregnant or she will shortly be - I'm not sure I can take Scar's offspring as my half siblings.

    OP, I loooove Scar! How sweet of you to give him to your mom. So far I've bought two Trek 820 bikes on CL for my husband and one for my son. I can't believe the deals you can get if you're patient and watch.
    Oh my gosh!!! Catriona, thank you so much for posting that link! I think I'm going to get the snakeskin semislicks for my mountain bike.

    I desperately want to buy another set of sweetskinz for something - but I'll have to wait till I find the something, I think

    Catriona, which tread did you get? I'm thinking about getting some semislicks for my Trek 4300. My knobby tires have a lot of drag, and the trails I ride are pretty hard packed with some loose gravel. I'd like to be able to go faster.
