Just ordered a b17 from Wiggle along with some proofide. I signed up for the enewsletter and got 5pounds off voucher which translated to like 7.50 USD, so I got both for about 83 bucks shipped.

Question about the b17. I'm thinking of ordering one for my girlfriend, however, should I really be concerned about getting a ladies saddle or would a standard work just as well?

You should measure your lady's sit bone to see if they match up with the regular B17.

I think on wiggle its the same price anyway. Only difference is that the rear side is wider, and the front is narrower.. I think lol. Maybe just do what vixtor said to do.I didn't even measure myself. How do I measure my sit bones? Lol

You could get your sit bones measured at shops with the Specialized Ass-o-meter or you could just use a tailor measuring tape and measure the bones that slightly protrude on your rear end.

Nashbar is running a pretty good sale on lights right now.

Also 20SINGL for 20% off any single item.

Shame I just purchased lights on Amazon literally last night. Maybe I'll pick up some back-ups (though I really just want to cancel the amazon order but I don't think thats possible).

I'm a little late to catch this, but I've gone to Bikeman many of times, and they are great. I got my Lazer O2 helmet for a great deal through them (by chance, but oh well).

Speaking of which, if anyone is looking for a very very comfortable, attractive, light, and breathable helmet for a reasonable price:


http://www.speedgoat.com/Catalog.aspx/Browse?Prod=16640
$66.67

This helmet converted me to a helmet-wearer.

Best price I've ever seen. I am a big fan of Speedgoat as well.

Well they're probably fake.

But I'm sure you knew that, given he's selling them for 60% less than retail.

thanks a lot. I just bought a Cobra with that (and just bought Metropolis on Ebay for similar difference in price). I'll probably regret not snagging an Ivan, oh well.
