I have to agree... callous as it does sound there are a lot of people who have just enough in the tank to hang on and not nearly enough in the tank to ride withing themselves.

I have also noticed a trend, and I welcome comments on this, of people who are riding very poorly fitted bicycles. They tend to ride frames that are far too large and this necessitates a short, vertical stem. This is also likely a result of poor fitness and no flexibility... the end result is a very twitchy bike that is difficult or impossible to ride in a straight line. Poor technique only makes the situation worse.
