    Makin me LOL on the MUP

    Today it was +50 degrees and the roadies were on the MUP with tights, booties, full jackets and balaklavas. It was funny.

    As opposed to denim testicle huggers, a boutique cotton hoodie with a fixie logo, and flashy sneakers?

    Some roadies seem prone to going waaaaay overkill on that stuff but they might have started their rides when it was still in the 30s.

    Heh.
    I ride baggy cut-off dickies.
    Or Spandex.
    Depends on the circumstances.
    Jeans feel comfortable walking around, but they feel crappy on the bike.
    Anyone ever have trouble digging a phone outta the denim testicle huggers whilst riding their hipster chariot?
    %^cking things suck.

    I dropped a roadie going down hill and uphill while eating a bag of chips, all I heard was gears clicking trying to catch up.

    You might be right there, guy. I, in my jersey, shorts and sidi's, only went for a quick 40 mile ride today. I waited until it was warm enough to go out in shorts and a jersey, because I didn't want to carry a bunch of extra clothing.

    Great, but the "roadie" who rides daily in his balaclava and windbreaker is going to be in better condition than you who rides a "quick" 40 miles.

    Yes, you are 100% correct, and your **** talking is completely warranted. You are the man.

    I'm waiting for the day when all you fixsters are middle-aged brahs rocking all carbon fixie whips with your forty-year old guts hanging over 300 dollar denim testicle huggers struggling up a hill on 40 by 19 gearing on riser bars whilst some 14 year old on retro spandex is kicking your ass and laughing at you on his vintage 10 speed nishiki with genuine steel rims.
    Oh what a beautiful day that will be!

    Hehehee, I know a few riders in PHX dress like that for 50 degrees. 50 degrees for them is like 30 degrees for me...

    At what point did your smugness wear off? Before or after you realized the insignificance of it all?

    Speak for yourself. I guess there isn't much more to do in New Mexico than make fun of people on road bikes?

    Maybe the were up on the crest! I'll bet it was cold up there...

    But, at 50, they should have started to peel som of that stuff off...

    By the time they get down in the valley, they will be nice and comfy in spandex and jerseys...
