A couple of years ago in Mountain Bike magazine's yearly
reader poll they asked the question, Guy on a Huffy or guy on the couch? Somewhere around 90% answered Guy on a Huffy.
Get out and ride your bike and spend less time worrying about
what other people are riding.

CODA is just Cannondale's way of keeping costs down, profit margins up, and owners pissed-off (with apologies to GRZY)
Coda Crapgrzy

Yeah, I hate that stuff as much as Icon stuff. Bought a new Jekyll as a complete bike b/c I couldn't buy just the frame. I stripped the bike before even riding it and swapped all the components off my tweaked F2000 (C'dale) then sold the hardtail with all new Coda crap. Currently there only thing left is the stem b/c of the sizing. The only Shimano stuff is the crank and BB - it's hard to beat XTR chainrings.

Another name for Cannondale: Crack 'n' fail.

Dog Breath referring to another generic, butt-ugly, so common, mass produced GT/Specialized/Cannonfail/Trek/ posted by some braggart in the bike-shots gallery as the "ultimate bike", or something similar.

A robbery at the LBSMcAndrus

Hey, I heard the LBS was broken into yesterday.

But the thieves left empty handed when they discovered that the place only sold Cannondale.

(No offense meant - it's just a joke, okay?)
