this has nothing to do with mountain biking, but that hasn't stopped me before, and since this is a pretty dead forum (according to one thread)....
so there i am standing around in the bike shop. i have a bicycle tattoo clearly visible on my arm (the arm in the avatar is mine). a couple walk in, i greet them with a "hey, how's it going? do you have any questions i can help you with?" and the lady looks right at me, and being totally serious, asks me, to my face "do you ride bicycles?"
now, i understand you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, and you shouldn't just jump to conclusions and make judgments on people you don't know, but if a guy with a bicycle tattoo on his arm, wearing some kind of bicycle product shirt and/or socks, standing in a bicycle shop, asks you if you have any questions he can help you with, wouldn't it be relatively safe to assume he probably rides a bicycle?
the crazy thing about it all is...it happened TWO TIMES that day. two different ladies over the course of the day, two separate instances, completely unrelated to each other, and it happened. the only two times i was ever asked that question while at my place of employment, both on the same day.
other than that, i just saw the avengers, it was a good movie. i think the hulk had the two best scenes.
