In my years posting on this forum, even with as much as I have learned about the mechanics, politics, culture, lifestyle aspects and health benefits of cycling; I believe that paragraph above is the single greatest thing I have read here on BikeForums. I nearly blasted a mouthful of coffee onto my computer screen while reading that.

Thasiet... Cheers to you, good sir... cheers to you.
