    My bicycle is an instrument of death.

    No, not mine, you will just have to keep wishing for that one. But I did use it to smash a copperhead's head into snake jelly tonight when I was riding on the MUP. I let them slide when I'm out in the woods, but not where there are people and dogs around. A 120 PSI 700x28 is hard enough to get the job done with a single well placed BOUNCE! of the front tire.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    Wow T-Man. I needed you with me this past week. Here you just run over them, and I was frantically trying to get my shoes out of the clips and up over my head! You da man.

    I'm glad the only snakes I've ever seen on the trails are the small non-poisonous variety.

    I'd like to see you try that with one of our Pleistocene-throwback saber-toothed chipmunks.

    "People who spend most of their natural lives riding iron bicycles over the rocky roadsteads of this parish get their personalities mixed up with the personalities of their bicycle as a result of the interchanging of the atoms of each of them and you would be surprised at the number of people in these parts who are nearly half people and half bicycles." - Flann O'Brien, The Third Policeman
