How to become a faster rider…

How To's/Tech Tips Humor Main Mountain Biking

I was looking at myself in the mirror and said, “dang, I’m sooo handsome!”

Then it occurred to me the reason why I’m hot is because of my short hair. Oh and I truly believe that my shorter hair has made me a faster rider.

See this picture, I had long hair. I wasn’t hot and I sure wasn’t fast.

So here’s my tip for you, buzz cut your hair to about a length of a #1. Basically that’s the last little attachment that goes on the clippers before you hit the blade. Cutting your hair off will not only make you look handsome like me, but also faster. How does it make you faster? Well I’ve spent time in our wind tunnel for testing, (that’s me sitting in front of a fan in my garage) and found that when I have hair, the wind doesn’t flow so well through my helmet and around me. But with short hair, the wind felt like a tornado coming past me.

But keep in mind, if you cut your hair short, people may assume that you’re some sort of thug. Cuz’ for some weird reason folks love to associate short haired males as trouble makers…like this guy.

  1. You are a serious freak, but that’s what keeps me coming back.I do , however, have to agree with you since I an also quite handsome myself. I attributed that more to me being 175 lbs. of pumpin’ steel and sex appeal, but I guess it could be the short hair as well.

  2. Ah Lynch, a man after my own heart. I’m glad you and I think a like, cuz’ it was getting lonely looking down on long haired ugly people.
