    Okay you guys. I'm coming out of the closet.

    I, Siu Blue Wind, am officially a roadie now. I broke down and got a cateye, insulated water bottles, new Pearl Izumi road gloves and clipless shoes.

    They told me to wear more lycra, and I said "no, no, no."

    It's okay, Siu. Society is much more tolerant of such deviant acts than it used to be. I understand that the American Psychiatric Association doesn't even consider it a mental illness any more.

    real roadies do not use insulated water bottles. the insulation adds unneeded weight.

    I think your pedals give you away.

    Yeah, with that lightweight bike you got to switch the pedals and get rid of the water bottles and cages - too much weight. Take along some straws and drink from rain puddles and streams on the routes
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    I think those are signs that she is only roadie curious. Come on Sui, go all the way. It looks like you are confused. You wouldn't want to end up in a 'camp' for roadie curious. (OK I admit I watch way too much South Park).

    On the serious side I think walkable clipless shoes and pedals are worth looking into once you are ready.

    So do you ride your custom Ti bike to Starbucks and spend hours there sipping mocha cappafrappacinos? And get rid of those pedals and commit!
