    And don't forget John Forester. No need for a "vs." He's debate enough all by himself.

    This is my favorite on here.


    The tools that the other guy thinks you need vs. the tools I think you need.
    This guy's way of cleaning/lubing the chain vs. that guy's way of cleaning/lubing the chain.
    Forum recommended Sun CR18 rims vs. whatever type of rim the person would rather consider.

    Schrader vs. Presta
    (seriously - many vintage 50's - 70's for the US market had Schrader valves. Do the purist in restoration use them?)

    carry pump or CO2 cartridge?

    (I see a cyclist, I'll move over to the left a bit...) vs. "Hey, Bubba, watch me make this guy jump!"

    "What's your VO2 uptake?" vs. "gotta light?"

    "That's a pretty girl on that bike," and leave it at that VS. every other thought you just had.
