    I Rode With Digital Gee!

    So, here we are in Northern California. Four of us start a 40 mile ride that will include several miles of climbing, including 7 miles at one time. We had stopped to rest after a short, 15-18% bump, before we started the long climb. Looking back, here comes a rider charging up the hill. He joined us for the rest of the ride.

    DG has been sandbagging us all. Here he is. 50+. Check. Requisite gray goatee. Check. 6'3". Huh? Power climber. Huh? But I KNOW IT'S HIM. Why? He's riding a white "Ruby". He denied any knowledge of this forum, so I will keep his secret. He is actually a very strong rider. Don't tell anyone. Here is his picture.
    Truth is stranger than reality.

    Looks like that chain may be heading up to the Big Ring. Must be DG.

    Nice camera angle -- makes it look like "DG" is really climbing! Frankly I am not surprised that in person he is actually a TdF challenger. Remember most of us only know the online "Gee", and our offline alter ego may be very different. Hey, next time you guys decide to do a Nor Cal 50+ BF ride post it here. I may be willing to drive up!

    This guy is obviously an imposter -- Gee's kit would be ALL WHITE!

    Gee's kit would co-ordinate. This kit makes me want to color-co-ordinate him. DG, being mildly OCP, would have a kit that coordinates.

    Imposter!

    Good point - do we even know that Gee is a man?
