First published Wed May 22, 2002; substantive revision Tue May 26, 2009 This article considers several questions concerning death and its ramifications.


First, what constitutes death? It is clear enough that people die when their lives end, but less clear what constitutes the ending of a person's life. Second, in what sense might death or posthumous events harm us? To answer this question, we will need to know what it is for something to be in our interests. Third, what is the case for and the case against the harm thesis, the claim that death can harm the individual who dies, and the posthumous harm thesis, according to which events that occur after an individual dies can still harm that individual?

Personally, when I think about touring, I think about having a handlebar that is the right height and shape to provide a variety of hand positions. (well, lots of other things too, but this is one of them) Since I will have a significant amount of weight on my hands for many hours a day, it's really nice to be able to move them around so I don't have constant pressure from one position. Straight handlebars Straight (mountain bike style) handlebars are not the best choice because of the limited positions they offer. Drop bars What most people decide on is traditional dropped road handlebars. Raising the handlebars can be as simple as inserting a stem raiser (the black item in the picture) Disc Brakes.
