    Ya know, like how people do when they're driving.



    (Srsly, never text while driving, or riding).
    I actually saw a cyclist texting while turning left at an intersection. He either didn't notice the light was red or didn't care.

    Does this mean that while a Smart Phone doesn't cause Cancer it has the ability to cause Stupid?

    I know we all like to talk about the 'good ole days,' but times have changed. You have a whole lot more pissed off drivers who hate us cyclists. Phones come in handy for an emergency situation vs. not having any way of communicating like back in the day. I won't go out without my phone for that alone, plus someone in the group may get sick or injured.
    Point taken and I'm not advocating not having my phone with me for emergencies and I admit that I also use my Strava app on rides. My point was more that I certainly don't need to respond to a call or text immediately while on a ride. It can wait until the next time I check it. Although it's true that it may take a couple seconds longer to snap a video of that irate driver trying to kill me. Luckily I haven't had an experience that bad.......yet.

    This is an idea worthy of a Kickstarter campaign, cycling shorts with an antibacterial aluminum foil chamois.

    Oh stop. If you are going to do a Kickstarter campaign it should be for a pedal design that already failed decades ago.
    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.

    Good idea, and if they could make the mount telescope, we could eliminate this problem:

    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    If your jersey pocket is near your kidneys, that means you’re wearing a halter top jersey and you have more to be concerned about than just cancer.

    I use a Quad Lock case for the phone so I can clip it on to the handlebars. That way I can share my radiation with the world.

    Soft things only in the jersey pocket for me (slugs, Jell-O, etc.)... nothing I could impale myself on or that might need to be surgically removed in the event of an accident.
