    Just remember that one should NOT take any iron suppliments because than it will point north no matter what hemisphere you're in. :D

    Concord,

    Magnetic North that is, not true north.

    Concord,

    Could be painful if your riding southwards?

    Kind regards,

    It would definitely have an effect on one's riding position... eh? Don't get on the drops or it'll be a "in your face" kind of a thing. :D

    I think the view has more to do with the fabric rather than the color of the material.

    That's what I thought at first but that view is only visable while off the bike and not riding. :D

    That's why I wear baggy cycling shorts. I'm not that much of an exhibitionist and I don't think I would survive all of the female attention I would get:rolleyes: .
