Ha i'm going to assume it's from one of those rodie sections. Those people pay like $60 for a seat. It's nuts.

The cheapskates only pay 60 bucks for their seats.

They pay more for wheelsets, than we do for complete bikes.

I've seen like $1,500 wheelsets at one of my local shops. That's close to my whole bike.

My whole bike was under $500, so it's easy to get a wheelset that costs more than that.

literally everything roadie is ridiculously overpriced, I was looking at a catalogue the other day at all the road bike crap and there was a wheel, not set, no tire, for 5 ****ing thousand. it had like 5 spokes and it was the pissiest thing I've ever seen, you couldn't ride off a gutter with that thing without tacoeing it

I don't get the fun in road biking.

I understand MTB and cross country and all that stuff but like...just riding by cars and crap doesn't seem fun.

Yeah, those wheels are ridicuously overpriced. Just think about it, the most expensive hubs plus the most expensive rims don't cost nearly that much... Chris King Hubs + Ody 7ka rims + ti spokes is nowhere near $5000

sit down slider reverts are the ****.

you shouldn't worry about how other people ride. just ride.

everything on a bike should be where it is most comfortable to the rider. not where it looks best.

I honestly couldn't ride fakie sitting down, the seat's way too low...
Standing up looks better IMO (maybe not when you do it until you're going as slow as I was, but still)
