Joe, thanks for reminding us over and over and over that you are absolutely unwilling (or perhaps literally unable) to view our hobby as anything except a useless bastardization of your preferred form of every-day transport. Your seeming distaste for our enthusiasm is matched only by my distaste for your posts.

The shop did a great job moving my components over and had me set up perfectly.

I also have a CAAD 5 that is presently set up as a Time Trial bike. I will have to get a picture of it in the daytime. Sorry about the bad pic of the Synapse, but it is hard to get an indoor shot of a black bike.

Trying to get the Miata finished, so it is hard to ride and wrench at the same time.

On that note, I hope to update the build thread this weekend.
That will probably be my next bike. Why Campy?

We can buy a bike that's arguably better than what last years world Champion or Tour de France winner rode for less than $10K.

For those that have never ridden a 16lb 20spd full carbon road bike, go test ride one. Just to see what we're on about.
+1.

I rode a TT bike this week. It was okay, I guess. Definitely faster but aero bars scared me. I am scheduled for puberty this year.

I have fun on my bicycle everyday. Apparently this is wrong.

You get what you give, dude. We aren't interested in hearing you lecture us about how our bikes are too expensive and not practical enough. If that's all you're going to do, maybe you shouldn't post in this thread anymore.

I think joe was just commenting on the whole 10k bike to work thing. If I was given a 10k bike for free and not allowed to sell it, I would be terrified to ride it to work, it would probably get stolen out of my cubicle when I went to go take a poop.

Unlike Joe I really dont mind road bike geometry, on the one hand the riding position isnt as comfortable as a cruiser or mtb, but on the other hand no handed riding while holding 2 beers and a bag of ice isnt terrifying because of the geometry (or the being 8 beers deep already part), coming to a stop like that is another story.

F40LM is a piece of this because it can't transport my world record setting ball-gag collection in the trunk., unlike my Yugo.

You could just show up to solo nationals and see such things in person. Its really a party where a "race" breaks out.

edit: Seriously, though... This may be the bikefаg thread, but it's still MT.net. Try to dig your saddle-packed ***** out from within your abdomen and stop taking everything personally. Besides, if you can honestly tell me that you'd be comfortable riding a $10,000 bike to work and leaving it parked outside every day, then I'll (verb.)

It might also be important to note that although some perceive road cycling as extreme inter-gender *** grabbing or failed commuting it's also strongly rooted in things like this:

I don't know too many people who could make that climb on a Citi Bike.

Makes me want to go ride up a mountain just so I can rip down it at full bore.

tell him to mail those to me, I will weld them back up and use it myself.

Must be a big and powerful guy? The wheels needed to take the force that would break the arms would be outrageous too.

That is, unless the rider is trying to tune the arms to save 10 grams and they broke because of it.
