If your bike could talk, what would it say?

"damn I wish this guy would lose a few pounds."

"More oil on the chain please. Fix the cables and put the rear fender back on. Oh, you should wash me more often too." That is what the Raleigh Gruv 2.0 would say. My reply would be, "Soon all will be done."

The Dahon Smooth Hound would say; "When are you going to ride me? It's been a while." My reply would be, "You'll probably be for sale this summer. Someone else will be riding you this year."

What the hell do you mean bout breaking up ?

It's that trailer isn't it ?

And don't think for a moment that I have not noticed that new frame and all those new parts sitting there.

You are asking how much ?

Now I feel cheap.

I really like going outside when it rains and even when it snows because when it comes to that, I am the best bicycle ever.

Not that I mind the sunshine either... and if you'd like... I could even pull the trailer when you go shopping later and give the little runt a break.

Seriously dude... you've been ignoring me while you flirt with that Italian girl... and that red bar tape makes her look ******.

Juste une colline? (Just a hill...) You must ride in the Himalayas

It was in three parts. My Bike is French so it would be a bit of a cynic. "Ce n'est pas une montagne." That is not a mountain. Though it should have been a mountain that is not. The second part was the Alps are a mountian. "Les Alpes sont des montagnes" then the cycinical statement. "qui est juste une colline." That is just a hill. I did 3600 feet for lunch with friends Thursday and was thinking of what my bike would say whenever I started to question my decission to do it.
