Think my road bikes tell others that I like to have quality without being a poseur.

Or if you looked at the Tandem- That is a bike that is ridden hard- but looked after.

Or the Mountain bike- a bit too retro to be be able to do anything too aggressive. (8 year old hardtail that will still give you a hard chase up the hills)

The Diamante meant: "Can't afford an Acura Legend."

Pretty funny thread.

Well, my bike ('07 Trek Pilot 5.0) probably says: "If he would spend more time on that saddle he would probably hang off the sides a good bit less!"

My bike says ride me when ever you want and I'll never have a headache when you want to ride. AND I can ride it for hours as opposed to hours trying to ride it!!

My commuting bike says about me "Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated."

My Mountain Bike says "Take me back to Sweden." (All Yellow/Blue)

My Road Bike...well, it's kinda quiet.

Do you think this bike whisperer might be able to train my bike to climb hills better?
