Moral Dilemma

[photo caption] The fact that Tuffy would wear a Genesis was never in question; what color Genesis was another issue.


Recently, Tuffy was forced to grapple head-on with a serious moral dilemma.

Abortion? No.

Religion? No.

Death penalty? No.

Paper or plastic? No.

What color helmet to purchase for the 2006 season? Yes.

The helmet to be purchased is a (brand new for 2006) LaZer Genesis with the Rollsys system. But the color, well, that was another problem all together.

The team is ordering silver. This is logical, as the team's kit is a combination of black, white, and silver. Therefore, silver will look stylish, as well as to function as a component of the team's kit itself.

On the other hand, Tuffy has always worn white helmets. It's just part of his "look", along with his white saddles, white bar tape, white gloves, white water bottles, and white sunglasses. Thus, the idea of not ordering a white LaZer Genesis was a bit of a sticky-wicket. Add to that that Tom "T-Bone" Boonen is wearing a white LaZer Genesis this season as part of his World Champ Quick Step kit this season (with a $10,000 diamond implanted in the helmet) only compounded the crisis.

What was Tuffy to do? Check back soon for the resolution.
