    I know a lot of you who ride have friends, or spouses that ride with you.

    So what kind of tricks do you all play with each other?

    My personal favorite is resetting the tire diameter in their bike computer when they aren't looking. Not that I have ever done that mind you. But it's a laugh innit?

    Reset the rear brake's symmetry screw such that one pad's dragging. Then make remarks on how easy you are having it this ride...

    Pulling brake levers when riding abreast, grabbing seat posts and yanking, rubbing your front tire on your buddy's rear tire. All sorts of silly things to pull on your ride buddies.

    Pull out the seat post and pop a hot dog in the tube..put seat post back in.

    Hot dog can be replaces with a big ball bearing so it makes a weird sound that is hard to figure out...

    I learned both of these from my LBS since they play these kinds of pranks on each other.

    Hallmark programmable greeting cards...take out the voice box and program it to play "it's a small world after all" and hide it in their seatbag

    Watch as they start humming the song and getting pissed about it some hour later.

    Hmmm, I've got an idea. It's kind of a delayed reaction though.

    A little rotten fish wedged under the seat or down the tube. That oughta do it!

    If your riding partner has panniers, try to access them just before you leave. While the partner is on a pre-ride pee break is always good. Put in couple of sandbags or something filled with nice heavy water (10lbs to the gallon ). Head out in the direction of the nearest hill.
    I'm too young to be this old!

    how about sneaking a few laxative pills in your buddy's waterbottle! will kep you regular riding buddy... ummm... regular!



    Dont try these at home, kids.....

    A short piece of broom handle is easily concealed in your sleeve and will give everyone a good laugh when you insert it into your buddy's spokes mid-sprint, go for the front wheel for maximum comical effect.

    don't particularly like those pesky 'wheel suckers' tagging along close enough to sniff your lycra? just a quick squirt with the mace should see you clear in the rear! you'll have bystanders in fits of laughter (except the ones immediately downwind of the mace)

    want to stay in the fast paceline but hate peddaling hard for sustained periods? easily fixed with a bunge, one end hooked to your front tube, the other to your buddy's seat tube... he'll thank you later for the higher intensity workout.

    This only works if the "victim" has a large camelbak / panniers / saddlebag, but you can always take a zip-lock sandwich bag, fill it with rocks / dirt / heavy stuff and bury it in their on-bike gear. Works best if you're on tour on a really hilly day...

    Not that I've ever been associated with something like this...

    If you want real fun, get some lead sheeting, and stuff their seattube with a nice long roll of it. They will wonder why their bike feels so heavy.

    Basically it's the version of the rock in pack trick for those that don't have packs

    This is always good:

    Pull up to a stranger doing a good pace and strike up a conversation. Right when they start talking, punch them in the face and speed off laughing! It's a riot!
    Bring the pain.

    I thought about super glueing a small pebble to one tire, but have never tried it.

    Ah! Perfect! For people like you, I recommend a swift kick to the groin. It's a lot of fun. Trust me.

    Actually, there's this tradition in my group. This 5-lb hunk of boiler plate gets passed around on tours. It'll get snuck into somebody's trunk bag, so anybody who only has a seat bag is 'safe.' Engraved on the plate is a poem that basically says HaHa, now pass it on! It often doesn't get caught until the last day.

    Well you could always wedge a small thin plastic piece "like a plastic playing card" into their spokes (right where teh "cross" in the lacing pattern is) where they can't see it, make sure it's set up so that the card pointing in a way that it tries to twist as the wheel turns....if the plastic is stiff and thin enough, it can make quite a racket.

    If you're referring to me, I was not actually being serious. I was trying to make fun of some of the other ideas. I would never actually do anything like that.

    Anybody try the water on the back wheel thing while riding? The wheel kicks the water up leaving a nice streak up their back and backside.

    Back when i was young and annoying, i used to get a huge kick out of removing one crankarm from people's bikes, and reinstalling it rotated 180...

    It usually took the victim about 15 seconds to go from bewilderment to outrage
