    I've seen riders jettison everything directly onto the roadway times infinity. Watch any race that's ever happened, and we'll see how many times each rider on each team blatantly and wantonly...

    I totally understand not having glass in races. But it certainly is not banned. Headbands are banned. Since the headband issue is a 1 in 1000 problem, then glass not being banned must be in the...

    Why do we choose to participate in something which we know has a picture posting probability rate of 3% and is thus an obvious fabrication and a collective waste of our time?

    Haha, sorry! I meant Cannondale. Brain fart.

    I'm not stateside now, but in Cincinnati and Lexington, KY, that's a $3000 retail bike, minimum. If I were you, I'd spend $9,200, buy them all, sell...

    See, this is what I was thinking was the problem. But it was a 1.50 Euro drink, not exactly haute-cuisine.

    And to me, also, like many folks have stated, I thought it seemed pretty noobish and...

    I think the new bike has "neo-traditional" 135mm rear spacing, and no accommodation for cantilevers.

    And the old bike definitely can fit 38s and fenders, perhaps it could even fit 40s and fenders.

    It's super easy. Luck into meeting a French girl whose better than you in every regard, coerce her into loving you, and then just follow her around.

    I'm an agronomist and work on a bunch of...
  8. Riding with Glass Bottle(s), Group Etiquette

    In France there are a lot of quality Italian and Croatian bubbly fruit sodas with only a little sugar in them, absolutely delicious. They come in big glass bottles, 750mL to 1L. In the U.S., Whole...

    That bike is "on sale" at my Trek LBS for $2999. I'm not a Trek guy, but this particular LBS really dumps the prices when the new stuff comes in.

    Begs the question, how the f--- did you score...

    You are four months of daily rides away from needing to use ride metrics of any sort.

    Sheer Fabrication

    Why are there so many folks who generate fake accounts (i.e. 1 and 2 post histories) and then ask a ridiculous question like "What's the value of my 1915 Ariel Roadster that I just found at a thrift...

    They were scratched in a crash. If they are ever SCRATCHED, and then rained on, it's all over.

    So, again, if you have the toe box width of an 11 year old girl, and if you never lay down your bike...

    I'm complaining that Giro didn't make replaceable heels considering the uber-soft compound they decided to use.

    There's no option for a barefoot walk or the call of shame when you're in the high...

    If a single slide-out crash at 15mph in the rain and a 40 minute walk over the course of a year with 6000 miles of riding aren't normal, then please, continue to enjoy your karma and absolute...

    If you break a chain, have no chain tool, and have to walk more than three miles, the heel pads are done, at which point they become marginally unwalkable.

    They have an extremely narrow toe box....

    You could put .45 shell casings on the bosses with putty to look really Gulf Coast Gangster.

    Otherwise, like you said, the boss mounts are pierced and threaded within the seat stays, so a trip to...

    1) Tiny heel pads, made of garbage, wear out in less than a year of minimal walking, non-replaceable.

    2) Flashy material looks sharp, but very easy to damage, non-durable.

    3) I have average...

    Ah, brother, when I was fifteen I was pretty boss.

    But that was many years ago, and now I'm just singing like the Boss, "Glory Days..."
