I'm all for randonneurs worth riding. I should probably shoot for a randonneur badge prior to my 4th or something.

I don't think all you (virgin) engineer bros adequately consider the emotional and artistic side of cycling, and it might do you some good to realize that us roadie douche-bags are getting it right. Bicycles take us places, with only the crap you can stuff in a jersey pocket, they take us a long way and the truth in performance is how fast your legs get you there. These bicycles are also beautiful. Some are a fair princess in a tower, others are ****-stars. My black/black CAAD10 is pornographic, something like a Crema Fab bike is a beauty queen, and then we have fat-chick mountain bikes, lolol.

I had a conversation with Emilio since I was assembling my first bicycle from scratch and I asked him if I should use in-line barrel adjusters or just "be a man about it". He told me to use them for the functionality, and then appropriately, and lightly chastised me for being a bike snob. I recanted and installed the barrel adjusters. Then today, several days later, I realized that he was wrong and it takes-away from the beauty of the steed to a degree that cannot be justified. I suppose bicycles are those to being "things" to him after being around them so long and professionally wrenching on them, for me it's closer to "a person" and I love it and would like to start a family with the bicycle. Oh yes, I've been very bad, touch me dear bicycle, touch me. Oh yes, that's dirty...

Hussy, if its a race bike (car, plane, dilldo, shoes, whatever), who cares what it looks like as long as its fast? Although the alternative is, its its not fast it better look good.

I just told you why. It's more than "just a bunch of pipes welded together". You already told us that you receive no satisfaction from cycling, we know you won't get it. Both art and emotion are embodied by the bicycle, you fail to appreciate it.

Bicycles can take you here:

and here:

You can go there in a car, but the experienced is sanitized because an engine does the work rather than the body. I've learned that bicycles can give me an appreciation for geography and geology that a car can't.

I do enjoy riding the bike. I love the thrill of temping death by box truck at every intersection. I wish I had a baller bike that was light and had non-shitty parts on it with tires that both didnt both have high rolling resistance and suck at gripping, mainly because I'm lazy, but also unwilling to pay a set of tires worth for a bicycle. But its still a tool, for accomplishing something so if its got some chain funk sprayed on the rear tubes, if the pedals and bars are scuffed from dropping it to avoid getting mauled by a public transit bus, and it doesnt look exactly perfect for the euro prissy boys. I want it to function, not be the cycling equivalent of Stance.

So at this point although you acknowledge the different opinion and function, you fail to appreciate it in terms of of the it's user? Come on, dude. Full functionality is still there. The look of "perfection" is achieved only after functional capacity is attained.

So having the bars at just the perfect angle to the ground in accordance with rule 46 even when its less comfortable is in the pursuit of function?

It's pretty hard to break that rule, and you'd probably laugh to know that I stopped and adjusted them probably five times on Friday, then started over from scratch by turning the bars down and moving the hoods up. However, you don't understand that almost everyone breaks quite a few rules on a daily basis, you know better than to talk about it. You will never see me post a picture of my bicycle with a saddle bag on it, but I run with the smallest one I could find and don't talk about it.

I just ran across this thread. I should have assumed if Trey was into something there'd be a big thread about it. I don't get to ride much anymore, but I've turned a pedal in the past. This is my stable.




That's with pedals and bottle cages :-)

Get that tri-bike out of here.

That first bike is pretty sick, ugly as sin, but it looks actually engineered, more than just some tubes slapped together.

There's probably as much if not more "engineering" in my CAAD10 as that troglodyte tri-bike.

Disagree. You your water resides on the out side of your frame, in the wind, slowing you down, while my water is on the inside of the frame or filling the gap between my arms and actually making me faster. Also, where is my back brake? You can't see it and neither can the wind.

And I agree it's crazy ugly. But it's beautiful to ride. It could use a better power source though.
