I've done that with my bike countless times, and it probably weighs a good ten pounds less. What's your point?

I'm surprised that you didn't compare his bike to a road bike and then go on a rant about how you could easily beat him in a downhill street race on a fuschia 1987 Murray girls bike with coaster Tuffs.

Fuschia. It's one of those colors that Crayola made up to make you sound gay, like periwinkle.

I don't think Crayola made up that word/color. I have a couple of Fuschia plants hanging up in my back yard. they're lovely.
