My name is sunninho and I'm an Obsessive Compulsive Poseur While I'm checked into the Betty Ford Clinic, I will be undergoing gradual withdrawal treatment -- so please forgive me for my sudden violent outbursts and my long, vacant stares when anything resembling carbon fiber passes before my eyes

When you start replacing your bones with CF substitutes, you will have gone too far.

Someday, I might get a team jersey, or go to a Titanium frame, but I draw the line at riding plastic.

I want to have skin of Lycra, bones of EDM laser cut 6AL/4V titanium, joints of Teflon impgregnated Silicon Nitride ceramic, and eyes of military grade optical polycarbonate.

No hair.

You are correct, sir!


I wear team jerseys but not team shorts. I've got a bling Orbea with a Cateye double wireless computer and an Atmos helmet that matches my bike. My team jerseys are worn by riders that ride Orbea. I don't shave my legs but I do wear some nice Oakleys.

I'm having a hard time finding somebody to take pictures of me posing with my bike; why is that?

Oops, I read that as OCD.

Somebody help me out, what's it mean? The closest sounding offering wikipedia has is "Oracle Certified Professional," and that's not me because I use MySQL.

OCP is for rooftoppers, weekend warriors and Lance wannabes with too much money and not enough common sense. No thanks!

I think full OCP is when you are sporting team kit while naked, since you had it tattooed on you.
