How about that poor guy 1:10 into the video? That wasn't just a pass, that was a fly-by. Where was the barrel roll?

I was actually surprised by the number of supportive comments. I can see that many of the posters will be coming over...

That thread is nice chance to turn them to our side.

Good job!

Yeah, ya know... I don't care if they actually want one for themselves, what gripes me is the name-calling and the slanted portrayal of bents' weaknesses. I noticed in that thread the few comments like that were dismissed in favor of the 'cool' comments.

I read that forum, too; but I try to keep it 'pure' for them and leave the recumbent talk here.

Did he email you? I'm wondering why the link to his pic disappeared.

Pretty tame thread... Especially once the NoCom showed up to scare them all away.

Yea, I could imagine Darth Vader, in that Empire Strikes Back scene:
