    My water bottle flung itself into your tire. It has issues.

    I would run any of these people over. I am dutiful that way.

    I will never, ever understand "style" and "fashion".

    And I'm totally OK with that.

    "Pittsburgh" is as far as you need to go. I mean, those people still get those silly-assed mullet haircuts! (They also like Sindey Crysby on their hockey team.)
    That which does not kill me has made a massive tactical blunder.

    You'd run over people cause you don't like the way they're dressed???

    I guess now we have ' clothes police'!

    Some things are too important to let morality get in the way.

    I like part where you click to enlarge and there's a pop in with a smaller image. At first I thought it was just horrible JPEG compression.

    So we get not only stupid fashion, but stupid web design as a bonus!

    The fashion spread is the Darwinian equivalent to people wearing bike helmets with the strap undone and hanging loose...

    I sure wouldn't mind more silly-looking people commuting on the roads with me. I must not be taking things seriously enough.

    I give a rip what people wear. But the characters being depicted are using bikes as a fashion accessory. Totally disrespectful to the bike.

    It is the equiv of sagging pants.

    It is the equiv of Justin Bieber.

    It is the equiv of Paris Hilton doing charity work because she read that her sign, Aquarius, is humanitarian.

    It is the equiv of Survivor-- a show where every measure would be taken to make certain that no one actually dies.

    It's clearly intended for the same sort of people who buy fashionable workout clothing, but never seem to actually break a sweat at the gym.

    Nah, but ya have to keep it in the bag to put on in case you get a flat. How else would you get those horndog male commuters to stop and offer assistance.

    THere's more to life than being really really rediculously good-looking.


    wouldn't run them over, but I hope they all accidentally die in a freak gasoline fight accident.

    There was a bike fashion show here in Austin recently. I'm all for anything that gets people out riding instead of driving.



    Plus, hotties on bikes... What's not to like?

    Sorry I've gotten to where I loathe most shoes in general (I'm barefoot most of the time, except while riding), and I know the unnatural stresses that high heels put on women's' feet, legs, and bodies as a whole.

    Sheesh, I wish more local cyclists dressed like the ones in the OP, but there is one cyclist that has a horned and leather padded Viking bicycle helmet that I'm really envious of.

    Don't be so "clothes" minded.

    It's probably easier to bike in heels than to walk in them.

    Maybe we're concerned about needlessly excessive wear. Even when our own supposed incredulity is hanging by a thread.
    "Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize"
    "So I do not run like someone who doesn't run toward the finish line. I do not fight like a boxer who hits nothing but air."
