A quote

"Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods."
Albert Einstein

(Think about this before you "shoot someone down" with your "reply" to a future post, comment or reply.)

Sorry folks, My post is in reference to those who post or reply to posts/comments that are negatively judgmental to other peoples’ opinions, bike fits and set- ups, ways of doing things etc.

Love it when people judge other people for being judgemental. Urging tolerance while doing the opposite.

Oh, damn, there I go being judgemental again! See what you made me do?!?!?
