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 would say that's the stupidest thing ever, but I'm sure they'll just prove me wrong.

So instead, I'll just say those guys are idiots.

They have to put their foot down to turn so they don't fall over. Yeah, that's brilliant.

Are they riding tubular rims? That's the logical choice for riding tireless, but I dunno if they know that.

Have any of you nay-sayers actually tried this? It's really quite fun.

But, like with any advance in technology, there will be initial resistance to its adoption.

If by a joke you mean "Look at me...I look stupid" then yes, I got it.

I'm going to buy a few boxes of rims and put an ad on my local CL. I'll make a killing every week.

Looks like fun on a nice evenly paved surface, anything short of that won't.
