    Rough end of the pineapple

    Having my lunch and just lying in the park near the Visitor's Centre. Saw this bloke pull up in a lime coloured Spandex, shaved legs and all the gear. Started to have a quiet chuckle to myself when I noticed he had saddle bags and a trailer. Then his sheila pulls up next to him. She's on a comfort bike with a seat that would make the grade in the first class cabin of a Qantas jet.

    I guess he really does tow the line in that family.
    School years were the best days of my life. I used to get caned by middle aged women wearing high heels, stocking and glasses. Now I have to pay for it.

    You gotta understand Haagen, that this cycling thing goes way beyond what you and I are in it for. There's a whole political undercurrent associated with cycling. Just read the thread "Progressive Bike Companies?" in this forum to see what I'm talking about. Or better yet go to the Advocacy/Safety forum and read the "Just Say "No!" to the Chicago Car Show" thread. Balderdash!

    This schtick is a real religion for some folk. It gets like real kooky man! Ya just gotta feel some pitty for them.

    Don't encourage him to stray... staying in General Cycling Discussion is enough!

    Good point. Besides, he may not be ready for some of that stuff just yet. It may send him into shock or something.

    Hey, HD--Look around these boards a bit and you'll find:
    * Lance Armstrong is the devil.
    * If you use the wrong chain lube, you're the devil.
    * Bike lanes are the work of the devil.
    * Brooks bicycle seats are ass hatchets.
    * Brooks bicycle seats are works of art worthy of Michelangelo.
    * My good man, they are not seats. They are saddles.

    It just goes on and on and on. But I agree it is amusing.
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    Well I'm back. That "Say no" thread is interesting. Not hard to draw parallels between it and and any self interest argument.. even *** control, political or global warming debates.

    Just glad I'm biking again.

    I do belive that Blackberry is the devil.

    Well, there's no shortage of 'em down there. He might as well work with what's available.

    You wound me, Haagen Das. It's almost as painful as when my wife and I took out life insurance policies on one another and she said, "Well, now it's pretty much of a waiting game."

    That actually comprises most cyclists. They're just not as vocal or "in your face" so to speak as the counter culture grouppo (pun intended).

    Most cyclists still like cars, still eat meat and still like to have a good jousting session with the missus from time to time. We don't all want to go off and live like some utopia seeking crackpots in a tree hugging commune somewhere. That's soooo 60's.
