Yay or Nay

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

Yay or Nay

Just thought this would be good for a bit of a laugh and maybe a little debate here and there,

Copy and paste the list below and beside each point, some serious and some comedic, write yay or nay and post.

-Proteam Kit?
-Bell?
-Large horn?
-Pants over shorts?
-Street cloths?
-Gloves?
-CamelBak?
-Headphones?
-Aero helmet?
-Reflectors?
-This [NSFW-ish] https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/i...uxd5HLXYc7OsLA /
-Aerobars?
-Saddle toolkit?
-Pocket toolkit?
-Baseball card in spokes?

Ok that's 15. That should be good enough for a start. So lets here it yay or nay?

You should have warned people about the waterbottle wedgie photo.

I have absolutely no idea either #kwmcd , but I like testing out all the 'features' that have been added to the forum. I jest, but at the same time the rock climbing forum I read is really under managed, so I appreciate the effort that goes into https://bikeforums.net

But don't feel bad. 90% of everything around here is a nay.

mostly nay or don't care to most of your list, but i wear whatever i'm wearing to work when i ride to my office so that counts as 'yay' to street clothes.

i think you just wanted a reason to post that tri guy pic because you secretly wish you could pull off that look.
