Get a Grip
I recently attended a triathlon seminar at REI which focused largely on equipment and safety. One of the things discussed was that bike handlebars must have the holes on the ends plugged or covered with grips. Otherwise, you may take a core sample of a competitor's body - or your own - if your bike falls. I came home yesterday to find that my daughter had removed one of the grips and was working on the other because she didn't like them. Is she trying to give her mother a nervous breakdown?
Today we went to the bike shop to get some new grips. I went to get the bike and load it on my bike rack and discovered she had removed the handlebars. "We don't have to take the whole bike." So her brain does function...
