I saw that before. Good stuff. My only question is why this comparison even happens?? Only in this (and some other bike formus) does it seem SOOOO neccessary to justify your preferneces. I like old bikes and I like new bikes. I like bikes.

I don't know about "justifying preferences" but I beleive that I have been ridiculed for riding an old bike.

Me too. I have regularly been "ridiculed" by co-workwers past and present for bike commuting, by co-workers who are avid road riders for "riding and old, steel, boat anchor" etc... I just shrug it off or return the "insult" in kind. Most of it is harmless. I like what I do, regardless of somebody else's opinion or obnoxious behavior. I just get tired of threads with people tryng to convince me that their preferred way is the best/only way. Unless of course its MY idea/thread... then we KNOW it is correct...right?

I like this forum because it attracts people with many different interets. That way I learn stuff.
