    Am I a hypcrite, a wimp, or both?

    So yeah, I bought this really expensive exclusive bike, yeah? Really nice ride.

    I wasn't sure whether I wanted to keep the brand stickers on it, but after some advice decided not to have so many on there.

    Then I was feeling regretful because others wouldn't know the name of the bike I was riding. I apparently care about making sure others know what I'm riding.

    Then the other day, you know, like there were these other dudes riding the same bike, and they were snobs. zomg

    Am I a hypocrite?

    It's kind of difficult to have perspective here, as I have so many fanboys to make me feel good.

    -------------

    I really don't like it when I start a thread and somebody tears into me. It really bothers me that I can't have total control of the direction in which a thread goes. So I better just close it because, obviously, there's no point to allowing discussions in a public forum to go their own direction naturally.

    Am I a guy that tries to cheat the filter?

    You crack me up, Nicodemus - THIS IS GREAT!!
    Of course this is ME you are referring to! *bows* Here's the thread:

    Why are certain brand riders so stuck up??


    Oh and a side note. Don't forget I said this:

    Well actually, I WAS awaiting your friend's response the the challenge of making a custom frame in her spare time. This will now give her the chance!

    Cheers, Siu. It is a reassurance that you have a GSOH.

    Siu if you are ever in my neck of the woods we can both take our Moots for a ride and no one will say nothin. Actually in fact about a month ago I met a guy on the road who commented me on my Moots and said he was from Colorado Springs etc... I did not read the whole thread but I hope you were not tempted to remove the decals. If you were and you did and you regret it I have a new complete set of decals that you are more than welcome to.

    I just bought a new set of decals for my 83' Guerciotti. I can understand the OP's comments about riding a brand name around like your on display but in the case of the 83' Guerciotti they are a beautiful piece of history from a unique marquis and I could see the Moots being that one day too.

    So I will have to disagree with your sig line I got my Moots used at a really good deal though still quite a bit of cash. But I figured I got this bike for the long run rather than Carbon Al bikes which I have broken after 4 years (please no carbon/AL materials analysis flame threads ) So expensive yeah but a bike to last a life time. Enjoy it and be proud of your decision to ride a modern classic.

    you're a wimp for pulling off the stickers and a whiner for wanting total thread control.

    What bikes have come into the shop the most with broken frames.

    Hint, it's not MTBs
    It's not aluminum bikes
    It's not steel bikes.
    and they usually rhyme with 'rightspeed'

    That's cheating. You were supposed to weld it.

    But seriously, S and S. I was kind of hoping you would have taken his offer. It would have been cool to see how it came out. Heck. He was buying materials AND going to buy it off of you! If you really could do it, why not? If anything it would have been fun!
