  •  price of bike cheaper than cost of bypass surgery (2+ / 0-)

    Bob Arnott, who wrote a fitness book for men years ago advocated buying quality sporting equipment if you were older than 25. His argument was that good equipment could compensate for age/out of shape body.

    Of course, I'm not advocating spending more than you can afford; just not forgetting that some purchases are long-term investments in personal infrastructure. Don't be afraid to ask around for someone's fancy bike gathering dust in some garage.

    And of course the price of a bike helmet compares even more favorably to the cost of a mild concussion.
