ROAD ID: Save Your Life

We’ll cough up hundreds of dollars just to shave a couple of grams from bottle cages and saddles. We’ll spend five times more on a new set of tires than we will on this… A bit strange that we spend so much money on something hoping for a benefit that we may not ever feel, yet so few have spent just a couple of dollars on something as important as this…
