    No, you didn't, and no, you don't. You just pretended the posts didn't say what they said.

    The point of my original post is the rhetoric and bravado here in A&S.
  3. Have you actually read any of this discussion?

    Have you actually read any of this discussion?
  4. The key, of course, is the militant VCers...

    The key, of course, is the militant VCers definitions of things like "rideable" and "wide enough to share". By those definitions, almost nothing is "rideable" or "wide enough to share".

    The end...

    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    And then I linked to a thread where the majority of participants admit to riding around in the middle of the street regardless of conditions and with disregard to other road users.

    But you are...

    Pfft. You're probably one of those Luddites still riding last year's frame.

    Hey, as long as you don't mind being a retro-grouch, Grandpa, you can do whatever you want.
  9. Actually, no, it isn't. Unless, of course, you...

    Actually, no, it isn't.

    Unless, of course, you want to play the kind of word games for which A&S is infamous.
  10. In the "When do you take the lane?"...

    In the "When do you take the lane?" thread, the majority of respondents "default" to riding in the middle of the road.

    Now it's your turn to prove that "There are no such cyclists with this...

    So we've now reached the point where anyone not instantly jumping onto to the latest trend is a "retro-grouch"?

    I look forward to seeing how you will prove that negative.

    The trouble with the Brooks-O-philes is that they have found the right saddle for them and assume that it must therefore be the right saddle for everyone else. I personally have always wanted to be...

    Oh, and I am essentially a self-taught framebuilder. I bought a Paterek manual and just started goofing around, eventually ending up with functional frames. Nothing has yet fallen apart on me, but I...

    I think mostly that all illustrates the point that we are all different. Pretty deep thinking, eh?

    But I find that I really value stability in a bike. Even as a young criterium racer I wanted a...

    Saddles are too personal for internet recommendations to be worth anything. IMO, your best bet is to find a shop or online retailer with a liberal return policy regarding saddles and then just try as...

    Beet juice is great for weight loss. I suggest drinking a full glass after every meal. This will cause you to vomit everything you just ate because, well, you just drank a full glass of beet juice.

    I just wanted to take a moment to note that "For every headwind, there's a tailwind" is not perfectly accurate. Technically, a cyclist is slowed by winds from directly ahead and also from the sides,...

    It's not a deflection. It's simply pointing out that the question has nothing to do with what we were discussing. I'm really not interested in the kind of game that ends up with "So you admit that...

    BTW, Ebay has several sets of NOS Superbe Pro seven speed DT shifters available now, and judging by the price, the collectors haven't taken much interest in this stuff yet. I may have to put together...

    Regardless of where you live, logical fallacy is logical fallacy. That particular one is called "shifting the goalposts".

    In thinking about it, it occurs to me that seven speed ended up as perhaps the briefest period ever in multi-gear derailleur systems. I mean, it lasted, what, two years?

    At any rate, the best bike...

    I have 2x9 bikes and I have 2x10 bikes. Both have adequate lows and adequate highs. Somewhere in the 2x10 I have one ratio that is not quite so far apart from another as it is in the 2x9, but I...

    Because it's dangerous, stupid, and obnoxious - at least in the A&S sense that "legal VC riding" means "I ride in the middle of the street regardless of conditions, and the hell with everyone else."...
