it's interesting how the ones who seem to give you the attention you need are often the newer riders impressed by things like riding hours or strava times, and the more experienced riders agree much less frequently.
if it were me and if i realized that i'd STFU and listen. you might just write it off as those pesky haters!
the definition of a hater is NOT someone who fails to give you the attention you seek in the way that you want it. grolby, gsteinb, rkwaki, shovel, just to name guys on the last 2 pages of this one thread...not haters. you're doing yourself (and ultimately this forum) a disservice to think otherwise.
kinda goes along with the 'not gonna listen' attitude you generally flaunt, though. i hope it changes, sometime.
