The seat of evil

New "city" tires for the mountain bike: $50.

Tuneup for the formerly cobweb-encrusted bike: $100

Cardiovascular workout from riding it to and from work: free

The realization that the high-tech tiny ultralight seat on the bike (which, incidentally you last rode 6 years and 20 pounds ago) is a fucking WEDGE OF EVIL, progressively prying your "sit bones" apart like a motherfucking wishbone every excruciating moment of the 40 minute ride home: Priceless, my ass. Literally.

Ouch. That's all I can say. That, and that I think the seat is tipped up in the front a little too high for ANYONE's anatomy! OUUUUUCCCHHHH!

That looks painful. I got a gel seat that is still divided so as to be more supportive or something, but it's a lot cushier than that. That looks like a sterilizer if I've ever seen one!

I think I saw the doc carrying one of those around at my wife's OBGYN.

Why was I at my wife's OBGYN? None of your fucking business, that's why!
