So I posted a similar poll in the FG/SS forum (http://www.bikeforums.net/foo/145301-lets-settle.html), and it shut everybody up about pirates and ninjas and stuff for at least a week.
There is too much bickering in this forum, especially among the regulars. Sydney is condescending, people get offended, people trash-talk lbs's and then the 'Industry Related' guys all sulk.
So, in the spirit of solving problems (and procrastination--I should be writing a paper now), I propose a simple question: who would win in a big fight? Would Sydney stilletto everybody while they weren't looking (with his dagger-like wit)? Would expatriate run over all comers with his tandem MTB? Would Rev Chuck smash his truing stand into everyone's face? Would Seeley lascerate everyone with broken bottles (or whatever?) Would Rayin write in garishly blue text about his love for hockey until everyone just died? What about the mysterious HillRider? What's he got up his sleeve?
My apologies to all whom I've forgotten, and my apologies to Sheldon Brown, who I'd include but for the fact that he'd obviously win (that eagle is dangerous. ) In the spirit of fairness, I'll include myself, but I don't expect to win.
