    Is this off-topic?

    Ummm....trying to think of a way to argue that this is relevant to cycling.

    I guess I'll leave it up to you to decide.

    Bicycles and beer both start with a "b".

    That's going to take a heck of a lot of thinking. The only possible connection I can think of is that perhaps if you extrapolate evolution, cycling represents a higher evolutionary plane. One past beer.

    It's a well-produced if lame commercial.

    Guiness isn't beer, it's just sold in the beer section.
    My wife uses it as a beer additive, sorta like the tequila in her lime juice.

    Guinness is nice, but it's highly overrated. I find it's too mild. I prefer a dark stout where they've slightly burnt the malt. Guinness is not "smoky" enough. Mais, a chacun a son gout...

    Depends on the type. Canned stuff is not good- On Draught and it is not bad but far too cold. Bottled at Ambient temp and pretty good but if you want the best-- Drink it in Ireland. Trust them to keep the good stuff for them selves.

    But I would not like it as a Preride drink. Post ride and I'll take guinness in any form.

    Good point. Or, it could be a thread about Sammy Davis, Jr. (who was singing "Rhythm of Life" from Sweet Charity in the first ad above).

    Here's the original:

    Carbon fiber bikes evolved from steel, so I definitely see the connection!

    Brings up an interesting point, can items "evolve" without the guiding hand of a craftsman? Now, can beer find its way without outside help?

    I like em all and say, lets all lift a tall cold one to the maker of all good things, Steel, Carbon Fiber and Hops. Benge Boy does find the fun stuff.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    Hope you are going to do some Interval training with that. Get too intensive and you could be ill for a while.

    Tequila shots are good interval training for those longer beer sessions.

    Beer is an integral part of my carbohydrate recovery session after a long ride. Here's a beer commercial that's always been my favorite...
