Sometimes I make kludgy repairs and leave them for weeks or months. I had the rear brake cable on my mountain bike attached to a guide with a grocery store twist-tie for a season and a half.
I don't find pursuit bikes with slopping top tubes appealing at all.
Lugs are nice, but I wouldn't pay an extra amount of money for them.
I want a Tiemeyer.
I think compact geometry is generally okay.
I think steel is only real to a certain extent.
I don't find Brooks saddle aesthetically appealing. It works on some bikes but not all.
I go "pssh, what a Fred" when I see an expensive road bike with platform pedals.
okay that's not confessing that's just bragging. i agree with all those.
confession- i want a coaster brake on my track bike.
I love to skid
I love when random people give my bikes compliments
I ride brakeless
I like to showoff my bike as much as possible
I like risers
I sometimes like aerospokes
I judge people who ride SS and not fixed
I ride my bike to the bar
I occasionally make snarky comments to roadies, and then immediately feel like an *******.
I track stand at lights with the hopes that people are watching
Wow, this thread has turned into an amazing group therapy session!
Conf.-I go back and forth on what handlebars I am using, it often depends on how and where I wanna ride.
I've considered shaving my legs.
I've been dropped.
Considering a new ti race bike.
Really want ti.
Used to me is new.
I ride probably further right than I need to, because I'm sometimes scared of getting run over by inattentive drivers. Mostly late at night, DUI'o'clock. Even during the day, depending. Should take the lane more often. But it's generally high-speed, arterial roads with no shoulders or expectations of bicycles.
Wish there were more bike lanes, or at least shoulders, around here.
I enjoy frequenting A&S.
I like derailleurs.
**** got GOOD since YoBoi...
my track bike and road bike boost my confidence a thousandfold when supping girls
i wish i could wheelie and backwards circle and keo spin just so i could sup girls more
I dislike "classy" bikes. Leather tape, brooks saddles, etc. Get that **** out of my sight and back to the early 1900's.
I can't justify owning two of the same type of bike. Ironically enough, I currently have two road bikes... and to make matters worse, they are the same model... just a few years apart, with different paint jobs and components.
The one I put more effort into finding is the less nice one. Still debating which one I'll sell.
Lately, I've been paying more attention to road bikes than to sweet fixies.
With time, I've come to see sweet fixies as more of a just for fun, simple, easily customizable commuter / beater thing. Not so much as a serious ride anymore.
I can't ever see myself not owning a sweet fixie.
The word "fixie" is stupid. I use it ironically.
Almost everyone I know personally uses the word "fixie" seriously. This includes coworkers at the shop.
Most of my coworkers' sweet fixies are expensive, "rare" track bikes that they've spent way too much money on, yet still can't figure out how to setup in a non-Jackass way.
Yes, I'm currently working at a bike shop. It might be short-lived.
I love bikes, but I'm not really into the "scene".
Moving from fixies to roadies. Ironic use of words. Currently working at a shop. Anti-scene. AND I wear skinny and cutoff jeans. Holy ****, I AM a hipster.
I'm kind of fat, don't have any piercings or sick ink so maybe it cancels out.
I gained MAD weight over this winter. Feeling super slow.
I'm doing the 5 borough tour this year. Really doing it for friends who were excited to get into it.
I prefer to ride alone.
I am dyslexic so bear with my posts.... [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
