If I had the money, I'd do it. Blingy bikes look cool. I guess they might ride well too.

I read the link, but some pictures would be helpful. Who is the poster child for OCP?

Yes. Except for my sunglass mirror. (Or maybe I should say no BECAUSE of my sunglass mirror!)

That's actually a mystical, higher level of OCP... meta-OCP.

I don't wear anything fancy, but I do have my closet arranged "Garanimal" style so I generally match.

Yes, Roadfix is guilty only of the "P", not the OC.

Not a poser at all. My bike looks cool, but I have succeeded in making it uber-fred. See:



The pic is a crappy cam-phone pic, so you cannot appreciate the full fred-ness of this bike. I have planet bike and indie bike stickers all over it (replaced the horrid-looking "Ultralite" decal it came with), and my rear light is secured to the mount with a cable tie. Oh, and the weave-basket comes off in bad weather and gets replaced by a totally fred milk crate.

I've got the Cervelo and the Team CSC jersey, however since my Cervelo is aluminum, I guess I don't qualify (see the sixth rule)

Unlike OCP, posing is not about the bike or gear. It's mostly attitude. I personally have been posing most of my life with mediocre equipment, regardless of type of hobby involved. With the right kind of attitude, even fred-ish equipment look very cool in your eyes, as well as others who happen to see you posing.
