Joining this circlejerk. I blame peer pressure, mostly.

These types of purchases often coincide with one no longer being able to see one's man bits when looking straight down.

I wonder what percentage of bike photographs use a garage door background.

I can still see my toes, but the motivation is similar. My goal is to require an additional 20lb ballast plate before the first 2014 Norcal PTE race.

I ordered 3 saddles from Specialized, 3 from Fizik, 2 from Prologo, 2 from Selle Italia, 2 from San Marco. Hopefully this will work out and everyone will accept the returns because I'm only keeping one.

Local bike shops failed me.

Welcome to the crew, Andrew. Let us know how your first B-group ride goes and if your heart jumps outside of your body or not.

You can ask Sonny or Emilio, I wasn't a fat dude at 206lb when we met last year. However, I lost 29lb between April and August of this year and I'm just as strong in the gym. All it took was "go have fun" on the bicycle and some determination. There was daily killing along the way, yesterday I was talking to myself and channel Jens Voigt to get me home with dignity and an attack or two on my friends in the last 10-miles. I think at one point I actually cried at one point when my buddy was in the big ring on a 53-tooth and I had to get out of my 50-tooth and tuck my genitals.

Sur la plaque, ************.

Out that window, I have a great view of southern Hoboken, NJ, including the Hoboken Terminal railyard & maintenance depot, where the big diesel locomotives run 24/7.

Oli had a similar quest a few years back. 40lbs of ballast IIRC and he did it. Rides a mountain bike.

I haven't ridden all week and I'm getting depressed as a result. You come to expect that endorphin hit a few times a week. I get to ride Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday.

I have to be honest here. I'm genuinely offended by this business of "let's spend thousands of dollars on fancy bikes which are of no practical value as daily commuter machines." I mean, for a forum which is principally about cheap cars, this is basically the two-wheeled equivalent of I own a Bugatti Veyron which I rub with a cloth diaper every night and drive twice a year dot com.

I ride a $99 WalMart bike to and from the Hoboken train station every day, and use a CitiBike ($95/year) on the Manhattan end. I'm pretty certain that in terms of actual mileage traveled, I get more use out of this combination of Chinese garbage and communist bike-share than 18/19ths of all of these carbon-fiber crowd. And they have cargo baskets so I can carry groceries with them.
