What is meant by a "Fred?"

What kind of insult (if it is an insult) is "Fred?"
Is a three-speed, upright kind of rider Fredish?
What about non-racing, non-mountain biking women? Fredesque?
Inquiring minds demand to know.
Hope this question isn't too Fred.

Ah!
Thanks for the explanatory link, spooner. I am relieved to know that I am not now, nor have ever been a Fred.
