    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.

    Nevermind the tough guys,...........Beware of the Freds!
    Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.

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

    i'm known to put people in the ditch.
    By the time you're experienced enough to get something germane out of a test ride, you won't need a test ride.

    That is hillarious, particularly the synonyms.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    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.

    Guy in the professional cycling forum right now is stating a case.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    Type A(holes) usually behave in a consistent manner, regardless of the specific activity.

    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?
