    What's fancy beer? A beer that wears a mink stole?

    I've got your restraining order right here. [grabs crotch] Restrain this!

    My car is a 2005 Ford Freestyle wtih 110K miles on the clock.
    My newest bike is a 2005 Trek 1200. My most ridden is a $10 garage sale find (I stole it, worth much more)
    When I do drink beer, I make it something mundane.
    All my pens are stolen from work or the bank, or the scouts
    I wore a Casio G Shock from the 1990s until I lost it.

    I don't drink coffee.
    I won't buy an american mass market beer. Newcastle is my most common choice. (Note recent ads seem to indicate it was originally a coal miners beer).

    My Bike was somewhere between $1300 and $1700. Don't remember and adjusted for inflation it would be over $3000.

    And if wearing a team jersey makes me a roady then I'm one. But I don't think any of the Jerseys I have still have teams.
    Perish any man who suspects that these men either did or suffered anything unseemly.

    I don't use pens at all, except to scribble a signature on the occasional check I still get.

    I drink more mass market merkan beer than fussy hop-addled microbrews and imports.

    My road bike is a 1997, my mountain bike is a 1986.

    My coffee is dunkin donuts.

    I don't wear a watch. I have a cheap-o citizen watch for when I have to wear a watch to make my clients think I give a crap about deadlines.

    My car is an 07 GTi, which I'll probably drive into the ground.

    My idea of a BBQ is tossing some dogs and burgers on the gas grill.


    I'm possibly the most regular guy here.

    1. I don't drink beer.
    2. Did you even see my thread on instant coffee?
    3. I don't carry a watch
    4. My bikes were $500, $329, and $240.
    5. I prefer pencils... blame it on my engineer's upbringing
    6. My wife has a 3 year old CR-V.

    Roadie... well, all of my bikes have drop bars (CX, SSCX, and a mini-velo), but they also have racks and I always wear baggy MTB shorts on the bike and ride with pedal straps. I am loving my SSCX bike right now.

    You are not regular. I wouldn't like you if you were regular.

    The reason for this sudden outburst, if you're interested? I've had to deal with way too many pretentious arse holes lately.

    I know that feeling well. I live in an upscale area, my neighbor has a brand new Lambo parked in his garage (works for Chip Ganassi racing, so actually a real nice down to earth gear head).

    My boss asked me the other day, when is the last time you went back to England. I told him 12 years ago. His reply was "all you need is a passport"

    I'm the reigning king of freds...roadies only ride with me so they can (incorrectly) feel better about themselves.

    I rarely drink beer

    I rarely drink coffee

    I don't even own a watch

    My newest bike is already 4 years old

    Pens are for writing, not tossing pennies into

    My truck is a 2010...it was the last one on the lot of a dealer that was going out of business in 10 days...I got a great deal on it.

    Some days I'm regular, some days I ain't.

If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    Every day between 9:00 and 10:00 AM, unless I have an extra coffee(which I drink black).
