    Soo....in that respect.......yeah, I'm a bit of a snob.

    I'm also a Fred. I honestly don't think that I look down on other styles of cycling. But I don't understand them and I think Fred is what...

    I didn't even bother with the questionnaire because I knew that my answers would be completely off of their charts.

    But I am something of a bicycle snob. I've been known to say that I hate the...

    Yes......

    It just had to be that way, didn't it?

    You can 'gauge' just where the water is falling and where it's not. But more often than not, it seems, it'll throw you a curve ball.

    I don't even remember when I joined. (Though I guess that'll show up on my avatar when I post this.) I suppose it was five or six years ago.

    And I don't think that the 'tone' has changed in that...

    I also don't wear much bike specific clothes. I always carry a pair of padded leather finger-less gloves because I'd really like to wear them. It makes riding more comfortable and there's also the...

    I'm thinking that your clothing is not waterproof. And I just know that I wouldn't be comfortable in a November rain without something sorta like flexible armor.

    Don't forget, also, that this is a pretty large forum. And with a large pool of people to draw from, you're bound to find a fairly large number of cranky people.

    It is annoying, though, to see...

    I like both the 'amphibian' and 'embryo' analogies. But I've been an embryo only to a minor degree. Until I was about 45 years old or so, I'd often try to make just as much speed as the pavement...

    We figured out from your first couple of posts in this thread that you deny the very legitimacy of talking about poverty or affluence in terms of happiness. We've been ignoring you because we see...

    Yup! You want fenders.

    Next thing that comes to mind is Bar-Mitts. Having warm and dry hands, as opposed to cold and wet hands, makes a whole world of difference. I make my own. Mostly because I'm...

    I'm afraid I can't tell you a thing about that bike. I've never heard of it. But it's sweet looking.

    If you live in flat country, then don't sell it. Ride it.

    If it were mine, I'd consider...

    I'd guess that whoever made the decision to open up that question for their customers --members?-- is someone who really doesn't know a thing about it.

    He/she might have even thought that the...

    We're glad you joined up.

    This is a big forum and you'll find that there are riders here of various 'styles'. I'm a work commuter/utility cyclist. I also think of myself as a "Fred".

    It...

    I don't have anything to offer at the moment. But just like a poster above said, we'll be glad to hear how things are going as time progresses.

    Do you live in a winter climate? And do you plan to...

    Naaah........That really would be living an impoverished lifestyle.

    But people actually can be happy with less than modern society seems to regard as necessary. And the youngsters, perhaps, are...

    That's quite good, really.

    I wonder, though, if most of the shouters/yellers are a bit too dense to get what you actually mean. They might think you're just rubbing something out of your eye.

    Fair enough...

    One thing comes to mind. I don't run into what seems like danger very much. Attempted mugging on my bicycle? Never.

    Now maybe such stuff is more common in, say, urban California...

    Welcome aboard!

    I suppose a geared hub is your most practical way of doing it. But maybe not, when cost is taken into account. You could consider putting your tires, seat, handlebars, fenders,...

    The thing that bothers me about stories like this is the sheer passivity of the civilized people who are not causing trouble in the face of trouble-makers.

    I give you my word, I'm not a macho man....

    Why.......I think you might have met Ginger Baker there. It sure sounds like him.

    Sorry to be a wet blanket.......but........no...........they'll never, never be convinced. There are all sorts of people in my neighborhood and at work who've watched me bicycle all around for close...

    For what it's worth, my understanding of the whole school issue went something like this. (My southern Michigan days were 30 to 45 years ago. And there might well have been some changes since.) In...

    I crossed the USA on a Yamaha XS850 with Windjammer faring once. We're talking about a bike that's at the low end of the 'touring' spectrum. But it was hardly a wimp and it was comfortable.

    Yes,...

    A bit harsh. Don't forget that people need to blow off a bit of steam from time to time. And here, among kindred spirits, is certainly a good place to do it.
