I was inserting a pic in @RobbieTunes "one 2020 bike pic" thread and decided to click on the Categorize button - never noticed it before.



Wonder what that does?



I'm sure I'm not the first person to try this.

It's a conspiracy between auto manufacturers and drivers to subliminally insert cars into our psyche and contaminate our precious bodily fluids.

If the value of your car exceeds that of your bicycles = you might be a motorhead.

Bike on!




Clear your handlebars and your mind will follow.

Hmmm, it's actually a tossup. It doesn't help that my cars and my bikes are nearly one-of-a-kind, were acquired far below market, and have values that are wildly subjective and depend mostly on the opinions of a small cult. I *think* the bikes win out, by a hair. Perhaps I should sell up now to settle the score, inform you all as well as the guys on the car forums, and put all the proceeds into bitcoins and real estate!

There have been Trek Edition VW Jettas, so it's all related.

My bikes and spare components used to be worth more than my car, but then I got a different car and sold all my bikes (and most all my components), so it's flipped. They're both special, so I don't care!

I was wondering how long it would take before the human toffee apple with the 42" waist and the 24" jeans would show up in this thread.



I think the whole reason he keeps ragging on about how he hates bicycles is purely denial of the fact that he seems to enjoy them whenever he's on one

An intelligent fellow and one of varied talents and interests - bicycles included. Not to be judged by his orangutan co-host of many years.

Not sure I'd be as keen on Shimano Light Action as he , but good stuff nonetheless.
