I'll one-up the OP. Think back to the 1980's and the video game "Skate or Die!" which gave rise to the infamous Poseur Pete and all that accompanies supreme poseurdom.

Good times.

Besides, the correct spelling is "poughzeker".

Yes, but with some of the master minds around here as of late( I'll hold off on names),I thought a thread of it's own was in order. Sorry to offend you.

You didn't offend me. I was slightly saddened, but not offended.

I believe the OP opened this thread in the wrong forum. This is an MTB forum right? I didn't think you could effectively pose unless you were riding a $12K carbon fiber, weight weenie road bike. Am I missing some sort of important distinction here?

Yes you are. It's not always about how much you spend. This place seems to be full of em' as of late.
