In some other heading and threads, when bents are mentioned, DF riders decend on the poster like bees on sugar water. They scream things like "stay out of my pace line, dont talk to me, keep your joke machine away from me, and thats not a real bicycle. For some reason they seem to be threatened by bent riders. It seems to me bent riders would reinforce cycling in general, and they should welcome us. Or is it the fact that they know but never talk about the fact that bents hold all the speed records. Are they jealous of the "bent grin"? So what do others of you think the reason is?
