I always thought this was expressed as "N+1 vs. S-1."

Wasn't this covered by boxers vs. briefs vs. commando?



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.
