Instead of gels? What do you reckon? ;)
RIP commute...
Sometimes seen bimbling around on a purple Fratello Disc or black and red Aprire Vincenza.

    I reckon you're at home sick and a bit bored so your mind is meandering a little too much. :P
    I don't think warm Frubes would be very nice.

    How can you guess? Surely would be better than warm gels though- then again I am getting a lot of snot at the moment...

    I didn't know what Frubes were, so looked it up.

    I now wish I didn't know what frube-ing meant.

    Oh God... now I've just remembered what I likened my first experience of eating a gel to :shock: :?

    Is Urban DICtionary your first port of call when looking things up?
  • Just stop it. Warm frubes would he foul.

    Anyway, this snot. Yuck. I've had it as well. Proper blocked sinuses for about 2 weeks. On antibiotics now. It's not the presence of it that I hate so much. It's the taste and smell of burning plastic every time I blow my nose.

    No - I just googled "Frube" and the UD entry was second, along with the description.

    Off to Google...back in a bit.

    Edit. Oh that. :|

    Almost back on topic, you can freeze Frubes, which might keep them fresher on long rides......

    I never tried though.

    We sometimes do that at home for the boy- quite tasty frozen yoghurt. I reckon we might be on to a winner- carb, protein and fats all in one squeezable packet. And fortified with vitamins!

    It's certainly a cut above mayo/ketchup/brown sauce/mustard sachets stolen from your local wetherspoons.

    Why did I look that up.....

    Also warm yogurt on a bike ride... no thanks.

    Maybe if you tied them onto your arms like a hell's angel so that they kept cool in the winter...
