Patrick. The strap is Pearl Izumi, but I've not seen these in the states. It's from Japan. As is Patrick. There's a small LED light that slips into a sleeve behind that red panel. Smart. But what I've really come to appreciate is the width of this strap. It's become a daily driver since I'm always wearing pants in my new-ish life. I miss wearing shorts. A lot.
As for the thermos, it's not great as a thing to keep things hot for a long time. But it becomes great with virtual pal, Tarik's, virtual mug plastered on it.
I've had a bunch of flats this week. And they've interfered with my schedule in minor but annoying ways. I'm beginning to rethink my position on turd tires. I'll say this: it was not the Hetres giving up the ghost; it was the Pasela, and the Tourgaurd version at that. Ouch.
