    don't forget the commentary on the fact that running is stupid.

    I've never visited one of the "Roadies and ______" threads - do they actually have road bike content or was it _________ content from those that rode road?

    I abhor capriciousness. Given a choice, my pants always extend all of the way to my ankle.

    And running is still dumb.

    I also like Impala's better than the capriciousness.

    Running truly is very dumb.

    That's been an issue as long as I've been coming here, and I joined in 2005 or so. It will be a conundrum forever.

    I don't know. I check into this thread occasionally and get really confused. It doesn't seem there is any congruence, it's totally random. Barely more than 2 posts consecutively about the same topic. But just leave it, people who post here really like it.

    In this thread, I think it's more appropriate to post what you ate for breakfast, how many times you had bowel movements or which person you hate at your workplace than to post anything related to a bike.

    that is exactly my question, why now and why here! I and others, are or were, as I have been told to stop asking by the mods, why some threads are moved and others are not, when all the threads in question are off topic for their specific forums.

    There are a number of things that bother me in this life.

    Perfect enforcement of a bicycling forum guidelines is not one of them.

    Saddle bag covers most of the post. Seat stay light is easier. I only need it on overcast days or if I'm out at dusk.

    Most saddlebags have a loop for a light.
