    No straight up crackin, but I've been in crits with a few guys whose bibs should have been retired long ago. That isn't quite as bad as when you can smell the guy in front of you though.

    Yeah, crack is whack as Whitney used to say.

    Ah god, I was behind a guy a few weeks ago who as wearing shorts that should have been retired long ago. They were literally as thin as panty hose. I got the hell around that guy as fast as i could.

    For short duration, I once rode behind a guy wearing liner shorts as if those are regular bike shorts. It was a bright sunny day and his canyon was visible because the fabric is thinner. I guess he doesn't know what liner shorts mean. I know those liner shorts because I have a pair which I wear under my baggy shorts when I go for errand rides.

    I passed him faster than I normally could.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    If you feel wimpy and weak, get out and train more, ya wee lassie!

    In all fairness the guy looks like his shorts, and right elbow, got torn up from a crash. I suspect he was pulling up the shorts as he rode thru the finish line.

    This is some pretty good crack. Forty years ago this was revolutionary on TV. Gotta wait until about 3:35 for the crack.

    Summer private training, you're overdressed. Winter I might pull on some shorts.
