From before Bicycling! Went slick / tech / lifestyle. Near the end though.

some of the answer man answers are a bit curious, maybe edited for length?

I loved how Q-man sez you can't buy a clincher rim anywhere in the world, the only way to get one is to rob a museum. What you want is a Welch rim! Huh???
I can be a bit of a stickler for correct jargon myself, but man, arguing there's no such thing as a clincher rim is really a King Canute move, trying to sweep back the tide. How's that workin' out for ya?

Was he the same guy who claimed there was no such thing as a seatpost, because they're called saddle pillars? Give it up Q-man, language moves on! I know, you could say the same thing to me, like when I insist there's no such thing as a TA "Pro V" crankset, they're called "Pro 5-vis". My pet peeve.
