How much does internet tough guy talk translate to the road?

Are internet tough guys also inherently good cyclists?

Are internet wussies also inherently bad cyclists?

Discuss.

I dedicate this thread to my biggest fan.

I consider myself an Internet Wussy. That is consistent with my performance on the road.

I find it ironically accurate. By my BFF's logic, that means i'm fast on a bike.

Euro would be the most classic BF example.

Are Type A(holes) usually good at cycling though. That's the crux of the matter.

Timmy totally dropped me on a ride last week*, so I'm thinking his Internet Tough Guy persona translates well to the road.



*Is having to fix a flat the same as getting dropped?
