Epic potential is epic.

Seatbelts be d___ed, but I am wearing a tinfoil hat for the duration.

The entire thread is, of course, amusing in an odd sort of way. It is certainly one of the most elaborate "Oh Noes ... Carbon Asplodes" threads I've seen on here -- and that's saying...

Of course they make sense.

That is to say, expensive 'hybrids' make every bit as much sense, for the non-racing, non-professional recreational cyclists who own, ride, and enjoy them as expensive...

Completely agree. Those bicycle lubes and greases are in fact just another facet of the Great Bicycle Manufacturers/UCI Conspiracy.

There is an intimate link between the unavailability of triple...

The former is an tried-and-true rhetorical strategy here, and the latter a well-proven graphic device.
May I also suggest quoting yourself, wherever possible?

Excellent idea! That combination should yield very good results.
D'you think you could work 'waving' and 'average speed' into it as well, or might that be too much?

Advice? No snark intended: don't talk about these kinds of things on an open forum. Places both your and your buddy's claim(s), if any, in jeopardy.

If you really are 99% on paved surfaces/non-technical bike paths, I'd splash out on a set of these, in either 35 or 38 width. The width will float you over occasional loose/gravel stuff; the weight...

The lunacy of some of the 'visions' in threads such as this is equalled only by the idiocy of the cod psychology employed in them. Entertaining, though.

What, I wonder, is a "gaudy outfight"? Can you elucidate? Is a "gaudy outfight" what happens when one group of cyclists in "full kit" encounters another, hostile group? Kind of like gang warfare?
