    I realize that roadbike review needs to pay the bills ...

    ... but why are they advertising this poison? Because of the name?

    ... the question is, can I get a KOM with it?
    It seems it is just for a fix, no kick in the pants?

    I don't think that nicotine is a substance banned by the UCI. I say go for it!

    Jokes aside, more than likely, the ads displayed to each person are based on some criteria (no I am not accusing the OP of being a closet nicotine user) by the advertising service that RBR uses. Sometimes, things make it into the categories selected by each to as criteria for advertising.

    Yeah, I get ads for car tires every few years when I replace a set. I got all sorts of interesting ads after I bought the machete for my wife last year.

    I don't speak Spanish but I listen to Latin/ Spanish language bands on Pandora sometimes. Even on non-Latin channels my commercials are in Spanish.

    I get ads for huge yachts, private islands, Swiss banks, hand-made automobiles, and special underpants for well endowed men.

    When planning for HHH, I realized I would not be able to imbibe coffee, with its caffeine, in my regular pattern. So, I studies up and decided to carry a couple "no-doz" style caffeine pills in my little pill box I sometimes ride with. [also: benadryl, tylenol.]

    That got me to thinking that I could chew on a piece of nico rette gum well into the ride, and get a boost from nicotine. In discussing this, someone told me that nic is a stimulant, but has some physiological relaxing effect on muscle tissue - so I would be doing worse, not better.

    Is it true? IDK. Still staying away from nicotine, though.

    I don't do organized group/event rides, but I used to ride a few with a fellow who was (at that time) a smoker.

    There's nothing quite like showing up at a feed station with your riding partner smoking a cigarette. From the looks we'd get, you'd think that we'd laid a turd on the table.
    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

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

    There are 2.6 million covid cases in the United States (as of June 30), five months after Donald Trump said it was "totally under control," and that "it's gonna be just fine."

    I used to buy my ex stuff at Victoria's Secret. Back then they would keep mailing you their glossy brochures, every now and again they'd send a coupon for a free pair of underbritches. I think they stopped the practice years ago, but I miss getting those in the mail. My wife now likes to wear old shirts and boxer shorts to bed, no lingerie ever. Sigh.

    Perhaps because I grew up in a time when the JC Penney catalog was a boy's sole source of images of women in any form of undress, and seeing a Playboy was like the holy grail of life, you could fill your spank bank for weeks. I still prefer glossy magazines to the internet for any sort of viewing of half-dressed women, but I'm getting so old that I'm too lazy to even cuff the carrot much anymore, yard work and landscaping excite me more. Sigh.

    My dad subscribed to both Playboy and Penthouse when I was growing up. The worst whipping I ever got happened after getting busted for taking a Playboy to school in 5th grade.

    I'm a big fan of moral turpitude, but I think this Mom went a little too far.

    Back when I was 12, in the late 60s, we got our naked lady magazines the honest way... we stole 'em from bum camps in the woods by the railroad tracks... the woods we were told to stay away from by our parents.
