But Wait, There’s Less

Posted by:

REEBOK_EasytoneNo doubt it will come as a shock to learn that some advertisers make false claims.

I'd like to think it was all my brilliant cycling guidance that led to her strong performance, but I suspect it was a combination of her hard work and the pink handlebar tape.
