The Etiquette of Drafting? I'm not sure we're ready for that just yet. Apparently we're still trying to get all the members on board with wearing clothes while out in public.

Sup? Not in shorts like that sporting the persona you’ve adopted. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. So, yes, it is that gross.

I confess, I had avoided looking at the picture too closely, but now I have, I agree. Those shorts are worn too low to wear without a shirt.

Hmm maybe I should wear my bib shorts

Add a jersey, or you'll just look like an extra from a Frankie Goes to Hollywood video.

No, be bold. Wear a thong to your next group ride.

Not to mention the mishap of pinning on the number before deciding that on the bars would be best.

If the number tag was a bit bigger, I would've used it instead of the thong. But that would've required four digits, maybe even five.

Dud, nobody cares if you are fat or thin, or fast or slow, or drop people or get dropped, except you.

What people are poking fun at are some of your ridiculous and selfish attitudes .... as has been clearly explained.

If an idiot rides slowly, and then that idiot learns to rides swiftly .... you just have bad behavior over a range of speeds.

That's kind of like the bicycle world's version of that old saying about broken clocks. :thumb:

If his goal is to lose the gut, let's all do him a favor and stop feeding him.

I really don't get what's so amusing to some people about this particular troll.

Well, somebody's thrusting something around here, but it's obviously not greatness.

The context of that quote is quite interesting , by the way. Basically, something told to the character to con him into doing a bunch of stupid things.

...Malvolio doesn't get enough love, IMO. I find his exit line, "I'll be revenged on the whole pack of you !!!", to be so descriptive of some of the stuff I follow on teh Biekforooms. :popcorn

People aren't familiar with the lost 4th act where he forces them to all drink the wrong chain lube.
