So im out with my bud today on my bike and we run into one of his friends. He has to be a rich bike snob who claims he knows how to ride a bike.. So hes on his US$2500 road bike and takes a look at my bike and claims what a piece of garbage it is compared to his. I have a Concorde Prelude (SL steel) with slightly older Shimano 600 parts on it. Hes got a bike with all Campy Record 10 TI on it. I forgot what make as I didnt actually care. Anyways, back to the story.. So I go, I bet I could beat you in a race with my POS bike. And he goes sure, I beat all my friends in a race. So i go, would you like to put $200 bux on that. And he goes sure, your loss. My friend tellms me quietly, dont worry, you'll beat him.. Hes a wimp. So i go ok, Ill race him. We had a 1km road set up. 2 guys at each end with walkie talkies so they would know when to say go and make sure we didnt cheat or anything. Basically, I sprinted the whole 1km and beat him by about 18 seconds. According to my friend, he stopped springting after 200m and just rode. That was by far the easiest $200 i made. Shoulda seen the look on his face. Damn bike snobs. Think there bike is what wins the race.
