Keep your sub 20lb bikes

Notices
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

I hate to break it to you, but the guy on the cervelo doesn't care. Unless it's a race. In which case, what you're riding will be irrelevant to his life feelings.

If you catch him on his recovery day, he'll be even more crushed.

Stop goofing off on the Internet during English class and pay attention to your teacher.

Having recently won a race on a heavier bike, not one competitor who shook my hand in congratulations said anything about my bike.

Deep inside, it was worth a giggle though. Still is. But the other guys just don't care.
