    LBS rep: "A pump strap?"

    Me: "Yes, a velcro strap that holds your air pump in place."

    LBS rep: "Sounds like a rare item. You're going to have one hell of a time getting your hands on one of those."
    That's gonna leave a mark.

    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.

    So many sayings, so little sig space.

    "This bike is really fast." <-For some reason the closer you are to 300 pounds, the more susceptible you are to this line, at least that's what I've noticed at every LBS I've ever been to.

    "Downtube shifters are ancient technology, we can't order them." <- No, but you can order STI, right?

    "Clipless pedals are practical for a commuter."<-No they're not.

    "A steel frame is better than an aluminum frame."<-This one goes unchallenged all too often, when it really should be decided on a case-by-case basis.

    While I agree with you on most of this, I can't agree on the clipless pedal thing. I've been commuting on clipless for 15 years or so and have never found them to be impractical, especially mountain bike style shoes and pedals.

    Disc brakes are xxx times better than rim brakes.

    And the corollary: You absolutely have to have disc brakes to ride a mountain bike.

    Followed by: Disc brakes offer superior modulation. (Makes me wonder if people even know what modulation is )

    same same.....I've used mine for about the same length of time..and I've never wished I had my flats back. Not even for.... 'just this section'. I have wished for different shoes when I've ended up walking occasionally, but never no clipless.

    "Do not even try to patch tubes. Just buy a new one" then offers to sell me a $10 tube. This actually happened and unfortunately, my naivety got me.
