Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Yelling versus Dropping Lance appear to be the front runners.

I don't think they'll sticky this because those exceptional threads represent the best and worst of Bike Forums. The rules of etiquette and conduct are repeatedly slapped in the face with nearly every post. If not in words, but intent.

I think the original list of 40 (was it?) should be stickied and even added to. Clipless fail thread should have been included.

Already stirring up controversy.

so you're saying that we should not ask for the twentieth time? I thought they just ignored the first 19.

I'm wondering about the style of humor these top two threads represent. I'm thinking:

R600 is to Adam Sandler as Event Services is to Lewis Black.
