Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

My net is horribly slow right now, so someone else needs to find that 'fiberglass womens bike' somewhere on this forum, and post it for me.

Just wait till someone posts it. Just wait.

Nice. There was a listing in my area a few months ago for a set of mtb tires that kept causing flats. The seller went on this 200 work rant on how the tires have caused flats since buying them brand new and he has no flats since switching to a different brand, but still wanted $30 for the pair.

I know, I came across that a while ago, dude's been posting it for a while. If in fact he's for real, and not a joke, somebody should really say something before this guy invests some real money into this.

Other gems from this guy:

That would be cool to find a disc like that for my bike polo bike...
