That's So Tight...
So today my wife and I were taking advantage of the nice weather and riding down to a cool used bookstore, mostly to satisfy my hunger for cookbooks. Along the way, I notice a ground of children all with bikes, stopped on the corner. The chain had fallen off on of their bikes from hitting a rock or something, so I volunteered my services (I always do). I unclick my shoes and lay the bike down on the ground, and put this kids chain back on.
Right as I finish up, one little girl asks me, "Mister, how do you ride with such small pedals?"
"Well, I have these cool shoes which allow me to snap into my pedals," I reply.
With bright eyes and a sincere sense of excitement, another girl says "Fo Real? That's SO Tight!!"
I get a stupid grin on my face and agree "Yeah," after which I proceeded to point out how my pedals matched the tape/saddle etc.
It just made me smile, I guess it doesn't really have much to do with SS/FG, except, um, the bike I fixed for them was a SS...
