7Mesh Strategy Jacket - Mens - $150

7Mesh Strategy Jacket - Womens - $135

I'm not a fan of waterproof/breathable fabrics based on several experiences in the distant past where these so called "breathable" fabrics left me sodden and frozen, once to the point of hypothermia. This jacket was worn for a 27° ride start today however, and I am seriously rethinking this, especially for very cold conditions and moderate efforts. It was able to cope surprisingly well with a base layer and thermal jersey underneath and only started to build up moisture as the temperature rose into the 40's.

Apparently these fabrics have come a long way in the past 15 years and I'm really happy with the way this jacket performed. Fit and quality are impeccable.

Nashbar had this Sundeal City Bike that was interesting, with a 7-speed hub.

Something like this with a belt drive, disc brakes, fenders, power hub and a maybe a nice rack would be a sweet little utility or liquor bike. The smaller radius tire would serve to run the power hub at slower speeds (more revs) too.

FYI: A liquor bike is what a redneck rides when he loses his license for DUI.
