You know you're a cyclist when...

You get spam with the heading "Lose unwanted LBS", and your first thought is "Why would anyone want to lose their local bike shop?"

You know you're a cyclist when you have given your bike a name. But then again, maybe that also works for cars. Maybe you're a cyclist when after a hard day's work, you go meet your friends who are also biking enthusiasts and go for a ride.

I hate to say this but I actually thought that "LBS" WAS local bike shop. It was the same when my brother flew in from Canada for a seminar, and told me that "he would be staying at the MBS (Marina Bay Sands) and my first thought was MyBikeShop, the actual name of the shop I go to. Please tell me there's nothing wrong with me.

You take vacation days to go riding.

You have a collection of old Nashbar catalogs around your living quarters.

You have chuckled at "the Eddie Scene" in "American Flyers".

No matter where you were, or what you were doing, you mourned when you learned that Sheldon Brown
had died.

not just bikes... I was driving home one day after I just had a flying lesson. I got on the highway and, when I got up to speed, I reached down between the seats to set the "trim wheel" to maintain my speed.

Coming back from a ride with your legs engorged with blood makes you feel like a badass.


What do you mean "off the bike"?

when you fall over the bicycle going down a mountain trail, and the first thought you have is that if the bike is okay, instead of being worried about yourself.

It happened to me many times.

Or similar... as paramedics were carting me away; I started crying because they wouldn't take my bike (they just wanted to leave it out in the wilderness all alone... no one to keep it safe!). Thankfully the ranger agreed to take me instead and thew the bike onto his truck... I was more concerned about the bike than my busted ankle...
