I actually thought the Heather Mills picture was kind of creepy.

BTW: Anyone know, is Patrick Dempsey for real, or is he just OCP?

Lot of comfort and cruiser bikes in there. I'm not used to that...

What's Owen Wilson's ride?

Is that a Swobo?

You'd think if you were horrendously rich you'd buy sweeter bikes.

Thanks for the thread. Foo is not where I would expect to find this type of content. I mean, this is significant. It is this type of coverage that will encourage more people to get out on bicycles. I wish that they would do a follow-up with other cyclists like Einstein, Hemingway, John Kennedy (both), etc. And by the way, was George Clooney riding a Colnago with a sprung seat? Okay, I guess we'll all have to remount the B-66's.

I'm inclined to agree, but I wouldn't turn down a brief chance to find out for myself.

Aren't "celebrities" supposed to be famous or something? I didn't know who half those people were.

My original quote was supposed to say "a certain, unusable in a lifetime, amount of money".

Sure it would be nice for a minute, but it comes at the expense of so many other people.

absolutely. Not to mention, you can only appreciate so many things before you're on overload.

I certainly don't want to be poor, but I'll pass on being Donald Trump.

That was my first thought too, and then I remembered he owns about three dozen antique Porsches. So he can probably just laugh and buy another one. The half-assed lockup is probably just to avoid the minor inconvenience of walking to the nearest bike shop
