I know alot of you have gotten offended at my posts so hear is another one. Can some of you explain the importance of "the coolness factor," or the vanity point and how it relates to cycling. Can some of you explain why it is important how you look when cycling. Can some of you explain why it is important how your bike looks, or how much mud is on it. I know there are some of you here that could probably care less. I have never understood this and would very much like to. Thanks!
