    On our huge Saturday morning group rides, I enjoy chatting it up and can pretty much remember names. Many are all, like, "what's your name again?!!!"

    Just order a large headstone for your final resting place. The above would be a cool engraving for it.

    Fizik Microtex bar tape is perfect. Everything else is junk.

    I agree Ti bikes are a waste of money and for old people. (i own two) But bamboo frames or other wood bikes, I don't get.

    This is actually a real thing.

    I dominate intersections and traffic by moving through with speed and confidence, while standing high on the pedals so that I'm sure I'm seen by all from every direction. The typical effect is often to freeze stunned motorists until I've cleared the space.

    I've told my girlfriend I'm "King of the Intersection" and we've agreed that if I ever miscalculate with fatal consequences, that is exactly what she'll etch in my stone.

    Let's really ruffle some feathers:

    Lance Armstrong was the best thing for American cycling when he was still around.

    Total agreement here. I just put their performance 3mm tape on my bike and I'm liking it a lot more than I thought I would.


    And on another note, I'm also a fan of taking the lane.
    Too old to ride plastic

    Here's a good one....I use White lightening chain lube because I get insane amounts of chain and cassette life.

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

    Well, I get stunned responses when fellows see me put my svelt racing shoes into toe clips and straps, and as I ride off, gracefully lean forward to snug the straps. No float slotted cleats.

    Down tube shifters, too. Too bad they're not available in 10 and 11 speeds! Short cable runs, so efficient, simple, trouble free. Reaching down is so simple. How often do you have to shift?

    my top priorities when riding in the city are courtesy and safety, and therefore, i break a lot of so called "laws."

    the ethics of breaking traffic laws

    "When Im on my bike, I regard traffic lights the same way a dog regards an alarm clock: it doesnt mean shf to me personally, though I am quite invested in the behavior it inspires in those around me."

    Same, I was never a fan back in the day, but got some as a samply thing and it's amazing.... finishline ceramic on the other hand, is no good (i was a long time believer in finishline teflon for many many, many years), but this ceramic is emergency use only as I ran out of white lightning and lbs' dont stock it.

    Ive been using this for years and dont understand the naysayers.

    @Frederico - I think there are 10 speed Dura Ace DT shifters and I know Campy 10 speed bar end shifters are easily adapted for DT shifter bosses.

    Mine: My steel bikes are just as fast as my plastic bikes.

    Wait, what's wrong with Finish Line Ceramic?

    I believe that "brifter" is not a lame word.

    Because I put it on and half way through my ride my drivetrain sounds like I poured water on it instead, squeek, grind...
    Never had an issue with finish line teflon, or wet (except in sandy conditions on the mtb) and white lightning has been great, ceramic has been crappy.

    Gravel bikes are pure marketing hype and the answer to a question that nobody ever asked.

    I believe in mixing groupsets. For those more a slave to fashion aka the majority, I view them as inferior.

    I hate that club rides start early in the morning.

    I'm tired of cyclists talking about having a beer after riding, like it's so original. Tired of cyclists posting pics of a glass of beer. Big deal you had a stupid beer. Who the F cares.

    Pepsi is the best after ride drink.

    Cinelli gel cork is the best bar tape.

    Sportful clothing is WAY better than Assos.

    I pay yearly dues to belong to an elite club. (I am not elite.) I've never been on a ride with it exactly for the reason you mention. I get two things out of my club, (mainly because I'm not elite), that is one pair of my half dozen bibs are my flashy club bibs and I get a good discount from a lot of club sponsors.
