    Especially, when they have those 50% off sales, after doubling the prices just before the sale. I saw it with my own eyes, but fortunately we had already seen the before prices. Another one is the going out of business sale...talk about markups.

    Jewelry stores probably have the highest mark ups.

    I don't care where you are from or what you've claimed to have done.

    Homophobic slurs are homophobic slurs.

    A "nancy boy" is an effeminate or homosexual man. It's VERY clear what you meant.

    Just stop it and grow up.

    Depends on who you ask but the most common answer will be questioning.

    Questioning. Excellent sir! There was a HUGE dustup over this inclusion. Basically it was done for people who are on the fence. However, I think people know quite well what it is they like.

    But yeah, there was a huge debate over this term back in the day.

    That was a long time ago before over-engineered, crap-designed modern road bikes so not relevant.

    This thread needs this:

    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    That's funny. Your profile says you're from Texas.

    They may be over-engineered and they're definitely expensive, but some of the stuff sure is nice to have.

    People spend money on dumber things than bike technology that allows me to not have a flat tire ruin my ride (tubeless), make my back hurt less and my body fatigue later (carbon frames, Future Shock, tubeless, wider rims, updated geometry, and more), allow me to ride further and see more scenery with the same time/energy (aero and comfort improvements), ride more safely in more conditions (disc brakes, tire improvements, and more) then I'm fine going to the grave with a smaller bank account.

    Hey, you can't take it with you, so you may as well enjoy it while you are above ground.

    Aw, I was going for sarcasm there (I honestly like lots of cycling developments. I call them "advancements.")

    I didn't think it would end up with someone getting put into a two-week cone by Coolhand.

    Sarcasm can be tough over the internetz.

    I'm considering being buried on a very expensive bicycle, so I'm taking it with me.

    I'm thinking I'll ride my 7 off of a mtn road, so I'm thinking it will be going with me too. You'll have to see it way down in the raven, then have to go in and get it if you want it.
