Bike brand most likely chosen by a typical Poseur?

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

So what background allows you to recognize (or even know) who Victor Wooten is?

That is normally a pretty small select group of people without a life who are addicted to music (of which I am one, BTW)

Well, you guessed it. I am addicted to music. My background is actually in music (I have a Jazz Piano Performance Degree from The Ohio State University, an Audio Recording and Engineering Degree from Full Sail University, and a Entertainment Business and Law degree from Full Sail University).

I'm also a HUGE Bela Fleck and the Flecktones fan, as well as a fan of Victors solos stuff. I've been seeing them perform live for about 10 years now. He also has a great album out with Stanley Clarke and Marcus Miller (smv) which is amazing stuff.
