B)Yes, I'm fat, thank you for noticing. Did it make you feel better? Actually, I've lost a fair amount since that pic. Am I restricted to the clydesdale forum until I meet your specs? (Umm, I don't think that's going to happen.)
B) I can easily ignore you in the future if needed.
I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings. I'm 5'10" and 230 (down from 245). I've heard similar and worse things, even on this forum, from cycling buddies and strangers. It didn't occur to me that someone who is overweight and into cycling would really get all that offended by it. I tend to wear it with pride; I'll always be a large guy, but I can still keep up on a bike.
Out of curiosity, do you own a fixed gear? None of your previous posts seem to indicate that.
I've got a thick skin, however, it came off as a rude comment. I'll presume you didn't perceive it that way when you wrote it, but you could have been more diplomatic.
No, I don't currently own a fixed. I was looking at "new posts" and not really paying attention to the sub-forum it was under. I did see plenty of pics of derailleur bikes in the thread, however.
sum ppl need to grow up. No suprime authority just because you donated to the forum
Ride bikes and enjoy life, done.
any excuse to use this picture
so i took a trip to bovina, new york a few months ago. there was this hill i tried to go down, but about 1/4 of the way through it, my legs were pumping like a 2-stroke motor with a throttle all the way open. of course, cause i was toocoolforskoolbrakeless, i had to skid about 150ft before i came close to being able to stop. during said skid, my left foot popped out of my cleat and i thought for sure i was going over the hill
i got a brake
when my girlfriend drove us back home up the hill, the car wouldn't go over 35mph...
Tom, could you do up a fixie locator like your Clydedale locator, please?

Did some hill climbing today :)
Why didn't I take pics when I was riding today? Only did when I got home :(
Epic, that is a great shot and view. I wish there were spots like that around columbus. There are some nice ones, but not like that.
Thanks :) Spokane is super flat but this was one of the few little ridges around the area and I wanted to have a little challenge.

I love that it's freakin' January and people in Seattle are taking pics like that. Awesome.
its been an amazingly mild winter. "FINGERS CROSSED KNOCK ON WOOD ETC"
Jan is still bike time for my over here. Feb is when I usually call it quits, then start again in march.
From last night's ride.
This is (ostensibly) a two-way street.
Major train yard on the left.
