I'm starting to wonder if guys with fancy bikes tend to be road snobs. I ride a Trek 7.7fx with flat bars not a cheap bike by any means. But when I'm riding and pass a guy with a fancy bike (drop bars) and I give the friendly wave or hand gesture he sees my flat bar bike and never even acknowledge me. Not that I really care but it's something I'm starting to notice more and more. I ride over 2000 miles a year and consider myself a decent cyclist. I ride some group rides and really love dropping those snobs on the hills, yea they pass me again on the down hills but I wonder if anybody else that ride flat bar bikes or hybrids notice this.
Thats not to say it's all fancy bike guys but its more that I can remember from years past. We are all cyclist enjoying our sport so a friendly gesture seems decent. Oh and if I see your in need of help with a flat or something you can kiss my flat bar ass goodbye I'm not stopping.
