    commodie

    I just don't fit in.

    I wear spandex shorts but I don't wear a logo covered jersey or shave my legs.

    I ride a road bike with platform pedals.

    I have a rack but can't bring myself to actually put it on the bike.

    Fenders? Sure, I'll get to those right after the crankset and wheel upgrades.

    I dub myself a "commodie". Logo submissions welcome but no one try to steal the name because I thought of it first and it's MINE. I'm sure a new forum will start soon. Who wouldn't want to be a commodie ?

    Ok Mr. CaptainCool. Too good to be a commodie, eh? Fine. There's plenty who'll be jumping at the chance.

    You don't mean this kind of commode I guess.

    I'm a frankenstein of gear... Dress Pants and Sandals or Dress Shoes on the bottom and a T-shirt on top and my Snowboarding Backpack to carry my change of shirt and lunch

    Its time for panniers and a comfy pair of shorts.
