lance armstrong in SKIDMARXXX

that right people, lance armstrong was an honorary member of skidmarxxx on saturday night. he also rode his first tall bike and had girls "holler" at him while riding so we decided he could be a member for that night.

Ya gotta give the man credit for even thinking about getting on a tallbike. Yup, he inched up a notch in my estimation. He's braver than I am so far. Wait til I get to Portland for the NAHBS though, I know that someone will have one for me to try .

Hey, maybe he's loosening up and actually starting to see bicycles as something to enjoy rather than a way to make money.

Don't you think he enjoys making money on a bicycle? Just because he does it for a living doesn't mean he doesn't enjoy it.

Oh Jesus, are you kidding me? You don't get to where he did without having a real love for a bicycle.

I guess you need to wear ass tight pants, rock riser bars and powdercoated deep v's on your fixed gear conversion to TRULY love cycling, right?

He doesn't have a tank, hard pannier boxes, a forked stand and an Electra bell.

If he can get a Rollfast/Columbia/Elgin/Monark/Schwinn like mine through all the stages and make the motorcycle crews jealous, he has my full vote

I totally agree. I don't love riding ENOUGH to get serious about actually training to enter races, etc. It's like saying rock stars don't love music.

I'm a little late to chime in, the comments didn't work for me when it was fresh, but I'll say it now:
That's awesome.

And I will add that one of the other people does indeed look like an early Agassi.

All I know is that he looked as if he was enjoying himself immensely .
